Not really - that was only important *if* passing the test meant we
used the `this` object directly. If the test is just used to tell if
we were called as a constructor or converter, and we always produce a
fresh object in the constructor case, it's less important. You want
accuracy, of course, but it's not deathly important that we get things
precisely right. I trust whoever's writing the spec to define
something sensible. ^_^
