As Brendan said, what you want has been discussed as Weak References on
the list, not really proxies.
The question of not wanting to over-specify upfront has come in other
places in the past. Sometimes, even when the spec leaves freedom to
implementors, it happens that implemetors make some common choices, then
people rely on the shared browser behavior of that spec-undefined
functionality. Then, the feature has to be standardized de facto as
commonly implemented afterwards.
My point here being that not specifying up front does not guarantee that
the details won't have to be ever specified.
The enumeration order of object keys comes to mind.
I'm not saying that it's what will or even may happen in this case, but
just remind that leaving things undefined can fire back and generate the
opposite of what was intended.
