If i recall correctly, this proposal was on hold because of the fixed
properties proposal (only getPropertyDescriptor I think).
The idea was that if there is a getPropertyDescriptor trap, then it
became impossible (or it would just require some proto-climbing with
some performance issue?) to guarantee the invariants of non-configurable
properties. But now that I think about it, i can't remember exactly what
was the annoying use case.

Adding Tom in copy. Maybe he'll remember.
