sorry, I am not able to follow this explanation.To which binding are you

I came across this problem when trying to build a Chromium extension using
the newly provided HTML5 APIs.
I tried to follow the example in the introduction of the Spec and it did not
work. But using the API as specified
in Section 4.5 it worked fine.

Either both APIs are required to work by the Spec (and then there is a bug
in WebKit or Chrome plus the Spec should make this more explicit),
or the introduction section should be changed in my opinion.
