A Precedent

at least in Firefox is working like that:

var blackMagic = Object.getOwnPropertyDescriptor(
  Object.prototype, '__proto__'

var NaO = Object.create(null);

var o = {};

blackMagic.call(NaO, o);

o.isPrototypeOf(NaO); // true

if this will work cross browser like this adopting a method rather than a
property that who knows if it'se there or not seems to be a natural
consequence, same way almost every library I know use

var hasOP = {}.hasOwnProperty

then hasOP.call(obj, prop)
 so even Object.create(null) can be checked like that

Best Regards
