Including the private-named properties? That would be bad for integrity: 
Alice can't give Bob an object-as-capability where the private names 
stay private. Bob can suck them out via this hypothetical 
spread-in-braces and then abuse them (e.g. to brand a trojan object and 
fool Carol into thinking it was from Alice).
