Not really - it seems to me that they could work for shared workers as  
well, but I need to think about it more. Creating/accessing a shared  
worker could also create a default port that for use with  
Worker::postMessage, while all messages from such would be forwarded  
to WorkerGlobalScope::onmessage perhaps? Closing such a port wouldn't  
kill the worker thread, of course.
