Not at all, JS always allowed a unique object to be made as a guaranteed
sentinel. That was a feature, and of course typeof sentinel == "object".
I think this is too philosophical a discussion to result in a strong
reason to risk "symbol". Just my gut-check. Other TC39ers should weigh
in (Andreas R. especially).
