wpt lint triggers on setTimeout() in a comment

Over in bug 1436763 I ran into a wpt linting failure because I added this comment to a file:

// Registers, waits for activation, then unregisters on a dummy scope.
// This can be used to wait for a period of time needed to register,
// activate, and then unregister a service worker.  When checking that
// certain behavior does *NOT* happen, this is preferable to using an
// arbitrary setTimeout() delay.

Its somewhat ironic that my comment about avoiding arbitrary setTimeout() triggered the lint rule intended to block setTimeout().  I don't know if its possible to make this smarter or not, but it might be nice.
