After revising [1] the test suite this is now the only remaining test [2] that fails on Nightly.

Ok. I defined the EventTarget as an untested interface, and this test passes on Nightly now.

> 3) "Stringification of navigator.battery": this is the same issue as #2.  The harness is looking for an inherited stringifier, but the inheritance model is busted because EventTarget is not defined, so it throws.

Btw. You've done excellent work in improving the WebIDL support in Nightly recently :)
