This isn't a cost introduced by the throwing behavior, it's one that'll
have to happen in code regardless of what we decide, or else the code will
be incorrect. You can never construct modified keys from a Symbol by
concatenation, even if it stringifies.
So your code either needs to be sure it won't be passed a Symbol, or else
it needs to branch its behavior.
