Out-of-bounds reads are very common in code that works with canvas
imagedata, because a lot of image-processing algorithms want to examine
adjacent pixels, and when you get to the end you end up outside the
array. Making out-of-bounds access throw on non-neutered
Uint32ClampedArray is a non-starter, imo.

Uh... No, it's not. They've been shipping for years and people are
using them all over, as far as I can tell.

Neutering is more recent, so I can't speak to compat issues for neutered
arrays with certainty. I can say with certainty that out-of-bounds
reads on Uint8ClampedArray can't change their behavior.
