[Bug 21424] New: Futures: rename `catch`

Bugzilla from bugzilla@jessica.w3.org
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=21424

            Bug ID: 21424
           Summary: Futures: rename `catch`
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: WebAppsWG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: DOM
          Assignee: [hidden email]
          Reporter: [hidden email]
        QA Contact: [hidden email]
                CC: [hidden email], [hidden email]

`catch` used to be a reserved word in ES3:
http://mothereff.in/js-properties#catch

It would be better to use a different name that doesn’t cause syntax errors in
older browsers, so that feature detection for Futures can be done without
`try`/`catch`.
