Hi Eliot,

The reason for that is that WebIDL deprecated raises/setraises/getraises 
a while ago. After waiting for a (long) bit, ReSpec pulled support for 
those (they're still parsed, they're just not shown anymore).

The problem with the IndexedDB spec is that the old 
raises/setraises/getraises approach was still used. That's a bad idea 
because it has no representation in WebIDL, so ReSpec can't do anything 
with it apart from producing broken WebIDL!
