After giving some more thoughts:

    function f(){
        return 12;

    var o = Object.create(f);

Currently this throws a TypeError (o isn't a function). If the @call
property was inherited, the inherited @call would be called (and no
error would be thrown).
I don't know to what extent it matters, but it's worth noting there
would be this difference.
