I checked current browser behavior for this coercion to the global
object for array methods (as well as apply and call).

Opera 9.61
Chrome Beta 1
Safari 3.1.2
Firefox 3.0.3

It seems that the above implementations coerce null or undefined to
the global object for in this example, so Mozilla opposes
these changes.
