[whatwg] Questions on Workers spec

I have couple of questions about Workers:

1. The sample code looks as
if  setTimeout/clearTimeout/setInterval/clearInterval should be available to
Workers (as methods of WorkerUtils?) but they are not explicitly specified
on any interface. Should they be there?

2. It seems workers should be able to create workers (including creating
'themselves' in case of SharedWorker). It is especially useful for a
 SharedWorker to create dedicated workers - since one of the popular
scenarios for it is likely  a "state container" that communicates with UI
pages while using dedicated workers to do other operations. Will spec
include this?
