Object.freeze(Object.prototype) is also a solution.
Incidentally, it protects also existing built-ins.

For property descriptors, I've also seen an interesting style in the 
dom.js code [1]. Basically, there are helper functions (attribute, 
constant) which generate the property descriptor to be used as second 
argument of Object.create. This case is very WebIDL-centric, but that 
could probably work in other cases. In these cases, the function 
generating property descriptors could use Object.create(null) under the
