Changing [[Prototype]]

I thought I'd give a heads up as over on www-dom at w3.org we're
discussing two cases where we likely need to change the prototype
chain of objects: document.open() and methods that do the equivalent
of document.adoptNode() (including that method itself):

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-dom/2012OctDec/thread.html#msg143

It seems ES6 has __proto__ which also allows modifying [[Prototype]]
so presumably this is nothing particularly bad, although it is very
ugly :-(
