> If you take a look at the Alarm API [1], you see what appears to be similar patterns to those used in IndexedDB (in particular the AlarmRequest interface). You see the same XRequest patterns being applied to all of the "System APIs" (see list of specs at [2]). I'm told that this XRequest pattern is based on IndexedDB (and Mozilla's B2G Project's nonstandard "DOMRequest" object [3]).   

Yes the Web alarm spec says it itself.
"This interface is identical to the DOMRequest interface [DOMREQUEST]."

And I would like just to note that here the "design by committee" rant is a rant which is made by the branding on the spec more than by the reality of interactions and sources. Just to keep in mind. Instead of looking at "who made it", it's more interesting to check "how was it made".
