Hi, Sangwhan, Matt, Art–

Thanks for the approval.

I just made a couple more changes:

1) I removed the “optional” keyword from the WebIDL, because WebIDL says:
[[
The final argument in an operation MUST NOT explicitly be declared to be 
optional if the operation is variadic.
]]

2) I removed the “version 1” from the name of the spec, since we don't 
intend to do a v2.

Let me know if all of this is okay with you.

Regards-
-Doug
