What I really want is for IDL to be fixed as technically we cannot
mention ArrayBuffer and ArrayBufferView in IDL as they are not
IDL-defined constructs:
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=23369

I'd like something in IDL where I can just say "this accepts bytes"
and "I want to return bytes", and IDL handles the complexities and
ensures all APIs are compatible on this. What we did for
XMLHttpRequest was probably a mistake as we could not make it an
overarching policy.
