--- Comment #9 from Domenic Denicola <d@domenic.me> ---
One problem with using the uint8 name is that in theory ES wants to add native
int8/uint8/etc. types:
https://github.com/nikomatsakis/typed-objects-explainer/blob/master/core.md#primitive-type-definitions.
It would be confusing for WebIDL to mean something (very) different.

Still it'd be nice to fix the problem in the OP, without having to first solve
the whole ambitious reform-number-types idea. Not sure what to do.

(I plan to go comment on Marcos's GitHub issue with ideas for number types.)
