However, check me here: the GSP makes "own" global properties on demand,
when names of DOM elements that come from name= and id= attributes (or
just id=? I forget) are used as identifier expressions.
So at least the GSP is not adding a new tier of proto-properties (again,
I hope! Please correct me if I'm mistaken).
