I do not agree with that. Yes, mutating primordials in ES5 should be
prevented if you want to be able to share your and other people's
code. The reason is simply that you will run into cases where you step
on each others toes. However, with something like contexts or ES4
namespaces (putting on my flame retardant cloak) I think that mutating
primordials provides a cleaner programming model.
