This seems like an issue for the next major edition rather than a correctable "error" for ES5/5.1.
However, feel free to submit a bug at bugs.ecmascript.org. That will capture the issue so it can be address in a future edition.

From the spec edition point of view, it would require a bit of re-writing for the for-in statement semantics algorithm.

The 'enumerate' trap would just reify this new internal method ( [[enumerate]]? ) and as such there would be no need to modify the for-in statement definition as it is in http://wiki.ecmascript.org/doku.php?id=harmony:proxies_semantics#modifications_to_the_evaluation_of_expressions_and_statements.
