Right, but for that matter, if you want Object.keys, you can just write 
out a for-in loop as well and just do .hasOwnProperty().

Object.keys must be considered a convenience method; it just seems like 
there are lots of reasonable scenarios of wanting the inherited 
properties as well as the object’s own.

Object.allKeys(), anyone?
