I know for a fact that not passing the thisObject as the third param
in methods like map etc will break real world applications such as
Gmail.  If JScript does not follow the defacto standard, developers
will have to add detection for this anormality.  I think compatibility
with other browser should be enough for ES3.1 to standardize that the
thisObject should be passed as the third parameter.
