UnionTypes.h is not regenerated if it's deleted from the object directory. I removed it to see if some build errors I'm having are due to it needing regeneration. I should have moved it...
Huh, that's really weird.  Gregory, any idea why that's happening?

In the meantime, what you can do to recover is edit Codegen.py in a non-semantic way (e.g. add some newlines at the end) and then mach build dom/bindings; that will regenerate everything.
Guessing there's no rule in the Makefile.in to indicate how UnionTypes.h gets generated; it probably gets generated as the side effect of some other command.
