--- Comment #13 from Anne <annevk@annevk.nl> ---
The other thing we need is unrestricted dictionaries with some preset members
for web animation. Sam Weinig dubbed these half-open dictionaries in

Strawman elaborate syntax:

open dictionary<keytype, valuetype> DictionaryName {
  memberType member;


open dictionary<valuetype> DictionaryName;

would be short for

open dictionary<DOMString, valuetype> DictionaryName;

which is short for

open dictionary<DOMString, valuetype> DictionaryName {};

We could maybe leave out the open keyword and just rely the <> syntax to
indicate this. Either seems fine.

keytype should probably be restricted to string and numeric types (or just
string types).
