All that remains is its use to preserve the `arrayInstance.constructor = undefined` backward-compatibility possibilities. My preference would be to see if we can get away with breaking that use case, and reintroduce it if that turns out not to be web-compatible.

The [[Realm]] check in Array.prototype.* is even more annoying than the 
IsConstructor guard, but unfortunately required for web-compatibility 
per [1]. :-(
