COMMENT:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Section 3.1.2

I don't think we can get away with defining column-major order
implicitly by example and comparison to row-major order.  This is
particularly poingiant given that we do not limit ourselves to
two-dimensional arrays.

Section 7

I'm not sure that I understand the scenariao described by "an attacker
might substitute a Uint8ClampedArray" and how an application would get
unexpected processing semantics, but the general sentiment it indicates of
"applications need to verify any expectations they have" seems important
to cover.

Section 8.2

I couldn't find a document to go with [TypedArray]; the one
promising-looking search result ended up just redirecting me to
[TypedArrayES6].
