Sure. Here is an example of what I was thinking: 
I run it directly on the webconsole and it works like a charm (Tested on 
latest FF nightly on Windows 7 64bits)
A couple of things to keep in mind:
- I have no idea which DOM "classes" people expect and what particular 
values of [[Class]] are set for them.
- I do not create objects respecting the DOM interfaces (it shouldn't 
make any difference, but tell me if you think it does)
- My sole purpose was to prove feasbility. I am aware that the solution 
I show is suboptimal in several ways (especially the several 
redefinitions of Object.prototype.toString)
- The same could have been achieved with arrays instead of weak maps, 
but would have led to memory leaks.
- I assume the "environment setting" code to run in a fresh conforming 
ES environment (ES5.1 + current implicit consensus on WeakMaps)
