Thanks for pointing this out. If this information had been referenced in the bug, I would have been less likely to close it. In any case, he bug should make clear the specification status and the relative maturity of the specification. Since it appears to me that the specification for any JS API extensions is very early in the process, and not yet in any W3C spec, care should be taken to qualify this early implementation work, e.g., by noting that prefixes will be used for any experimental interface extensions.

It's easy enough to reopen, so I don't view this as a problem.
