Why globalThis instead of something intuitive like globalObject, systemGlobal, or globalEntity?

I know it may be too late for this, but I imagine `globalThis` can bring
confusion to beginners, especially ESL beginners.

Things like `globalObject`, `systemGlobal`, or `globalEntity` would've been
more intuitive; they make sense in plain English.

Well anyways, have a good weekend!
