> The proposed fix seems more like a workaround to me. There are dozens of very similar calls to `raiseOnDOMError` in this and other files, so I would think a more general solution is needed.

For calls to `raiseOnDOMError()` with argument of type `ExceptionOr<Ref<T>>`, the returned value is again passed through `WTF::getPtr()`. This doesn't modify the value returned, but removing it will require changing about 40 function calls.
