 It will be initialized to `undefined` because that is how JS works (and we
 rely on that fact in many places).

 The call to `showBridgeDBBridges();` is there because we want to remove
 any old bridge lines from the UI (it clears them if gBridgeDBBridges is
 undefined or empty). But to address your item 3) in comment:49 we will be
 removing this block of code.

 We just followed the order that is presented in the dropdown menu within
 the UI.

 Good catch. A better URL for the spec (which we will put in the source
 code) is:

 We will also fix the other (minor) items that I did not mention above.
