            Bug ID: 25495
           Summary: Behavior of no [Exposed] on interface members is weird
           Product: WebAppsWG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebIDL

The behavior of interface members with no explicit annotation is:

  the interface member – or a partial interface definition the interface member
  was declared on – was not declared with an [Exposed] extended attribute, and
  the ECMAScript global object implements the primary global interface.

That means that if some interface is exposed in workers, all its members _also_
need to be annotated with [Exposed=Workers] (or be in a partial interface thus
annotated).  It would make more sense to me to make exposure be true by default
for interface members, so you only need to annotate the ones that shouldn't be
exposed somewhere, no?
