The Web IDL should be cleaned up:

  * There is no such thing as DOMWindow
  * Supplemental interfaces should use [Supplemental]

The methods should raise some kind of exception when there is something  
wrong with the URL argument. See e.g. the open() method description in  

It would be nice if fetching of resources was described in terms of the  
fetch algorithm from HTML5.

Currently there are no processing requirements for the mime argument of  
createWebNotification(), do we really need it?

Queuing should be defined in terms of the HTML5 event loop.

Should we really put another interface on the global object? Can we not  
put these on window.navigator like other APIs that integrate with the  
system layer?
