>>> The purpose would be defining a class whose instances don't have
Object.prototype on their prototype chain.  If "extends null" doesn't work,
then I think you'd have to do something like this to achieve the same?
>>>     function NullBase() {}
>>>     NullBase.prototype = Object.create(null);
>>>     class C extends NullBase {}

Can't this be solved by returning a null object from the constructor?

class Null{
  constructor() {
    return Object.create(null);

class MyClass extends Null{

let foo = new MyClass();
foo.toString() //ReferenceError
