As Cameron noted, WebIDL requires this method to throw if too few 
arguments are passed, so to the extent that the spec is defined with 
WebIDL the behavior is completely defined.

A related question is what should happen if undefined is passed for some 
of the arguments.

See also https://www.w3.org/bugzilla_public/show_bug.cgi?id=23532 for 
some interesting discussion.
