Well, this proposal is not for check equality. Its purpose is to compare
two object that which object is `greater`.

I'm sure this feature is already implemented for every modern js engines,
as it's needed to implement Map/Set. But we don't have js interface for it
yet. Thus proposal is to expose this functionality to userland application.
