Yes, but how to use the IDL to document it without confusing the many non-IDL 
users who will be using the docs?

I'd rather we hjust add the type info where you point it out (and anywhere 
else), and link to the IDL for advanced users.

???  How is it incorrect?

It would be nice in these descriptions to give short explanations of special 
values, such as what a namespaceURI of "" or None means.
