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


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.
