@@toStringTag spoofing for null and undefined

I propose addition of String.prototype[@@toStringTag] as well as abridgement of Object.prototype.toString. By the way, I do see a new problem in current Object.prototype.toString behavior: what shall it behave when applied on a proxy object? Since proxy do not have these internal slots, it will return [object Object] (assume no @@toStringTag defined on the proxy). However, an proxy of array will return [object Array] (see definition of IsArray). This leads to an inconsistency.
