           Summary: Grammar issue with qualified operations
        QA Contact: public-webapps-bugzilla@w3.org
          Severity: normal
    Classification: Unclassified
                OS: All

          Hardware: PC

If you track through the grammar, you get (removing paths irrelevant to this

InterfaceMember → AttributeOrOperationOrIterator
AttributeOrOperationOrIterator → Qualifier AttributeOrOperationRest
Qualifier → "static" | "stringifier"
AttributeOrOperationRest → OperationRest
OperationRest → OptionalIdentifier "(" ArgumentList ")" ";"

So putting all of that together, it's impossible to specify a return type for
static or stringifier operations. It should probably be ReturnType
OperationRest in there.
