Thanks for resolving this. Having the class side inheritance for @@create
makes complete sense to me and it solves a lot of issues. It can be used to
explain how subclassing Array and DOM objects work too.

For example:

HTMLButtonElement.@@create = function() {
  return document.createElement('button');

class MyButton extends HTMLButtonElement {
  constructor(text) {
    this.textContent = text;
