    1515== Associating JavaScript APIs with "core" objects ==
    1616
    17 Even self-contained features often need to expose JavaScript APIs on "catch-all" interfaces like DOMWindow or Navigator.  If we declared these APIs in DOMWindow.idl and implemented them in DOMWindow.h/cpp, the complexity of DOMWindow would increase with each added feature.  To avoid complexity creep in these core classes, you can declare your JavaScript API in supplemental IDL files, mirroring the "partial interface" WebIDL mechanism used in specifications.
