I tried to figure out what a sensible follow up was for this thread,
but as far as I can tell we first need to improve the existing
situation around globals. For IDL that should maybe start with this
bug

  https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=24652

and its dependencies.

My hope is that if we provide better infrastructure for authors of
specification it'll be easier to guide them towards using the right
globals and/or origins.
