> Unless you wanted promise-likes to return fresh objects too?
Yes, that is largely the use case for `Q`/`Promise.as`/whatever. Handing it untrusted input, possible a non-promise, possibly a promise-like, possibly a promise, and getting back a trusted promise.
> The only way to have a completely reliable type test is to use a WeakSet to keep track of instances
I believe this is what Mark's makeQ.js does.
> Do you consider WeakMaps sufficient for polyfillability?
I believe makeQ.js uses a WeakMap polyfill, so yes.
