Given window.name's rather complicated magic, if we _can_ make it
non-replaceable, we should, IMHO.

Is there evidence that this needs to be replaceable for compat?

The difference in behaviour with 'var' vs no-'var' seems unsupported by the JS
spec; am I misreading the spec?

I really have no idea what I should be speccing here if window.name is to be
replaceable and if WebIDL and the JS spec don't make the stuff about the
prototype that bz describes in comment 4 automatically work. If that is indeed
what should happen, some advice as to how to spec it would be very welcome.
