This property of top-level const being visible across mutliple programs 
(script elements) holds under the current ES6 spec (global lexical 
tier). Were you remarking on how const under the counter-proposal Jason 
brought up would bind a global object property? Otherwise the 
multiple-programs-see-one-program's-const situation doesn't change from 
either proposal to the other.
