We were told (I think by Allen) that setting [[Extensible]] to true would
conflict in some way with ES6 modules. I do agree it's a big restriction to
set it to false given how JavaScript works today.

So the question is - are we going to have problems with ES6 Modules is we
set this property to true? If so, is there another way of solving this
