Perhaps I'm missing something here, but isn't the only way to  actually inspect (report?) the attributes of a property is via Object.getOwnPropertyDescriptor so you can't use a to inspect the attributes of a property of b, regardless or whether or not b is a Proxy. I believe that the only operations on a that are sensitive to the value of the configurable attribute only apply to own properties.
