This is awesome, thank you for taking the time to put this together. If I have any specific questions for you, should I ask them here (perhaps others would benefit) or should I email you directly?

Thanks again

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)
