If you can find a definition (as opposed to a description) it'll be in
and even in their description, it doesn't say it applies to host
objects in the ES sense, it certainly doesn't work with host objects
in other implementations.
I certainly can't see what the problem with tokenising a string on
whitespace is, that very code is required throughout browsers, and is
the sort of "my first project" in a CS course...
