OK so I filed a bug to make HTMLPropertiesCollection not callable:

  http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=11032

As for the other interfaces, as I said I have no data so I’ll let others
make the arguments.  Callers aren’t going to disappear from Web IDL at
least while document.all requires it.

I have a slight concern that Firefox’s not having HTMLCollections be
callable, even though it is not needed for compatibility with the web,
would then render it non-conforming (assuming everything else is in the
spec is implemented perfectly!).  If tests are written to check that
HTMLCollections are callable, it would be unfortunate if we were
pressured to implement them just to pass the tests.
