This is a weird situation indeed, as Firefox seems to be about to ship  
this feature with an API that other implementors do not like, and I  
certainly think that we need to come to an agreement soon.

FWIW, for now I'm implementing your proposal that combines Worker and  
SharedWorker APIs, see e.g. <https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=22203 
 > (I also think that SharedWorker doesn't deserve to have an  
interface of its own, but I'm not implementing shared workers yet  
anyway). I like that it doesn't tie Worker and MessagePort lifetimes  
too closely, which means that it has a higher chance of being paradox- 
free.

This is why I'm concerned about the details of this particular proposal.
