Web IDL in bug 8241 has just introduced a term "resolve before prototype
properties", which can be used to describe named properties that need to be
resolved after looking at the own object but before the prototype chain.  This
is needed for Window's property resolution behaviour, which as bug 8241 points
at, in most browsers requires looking for frame names earlier than global scope
polluter properties.

I suggest in the second list item after "The Window interface supports named
properties." say that these named properties are "resolved before prototype
properties", and link to #dfn-resolved-before-prototype-properties in the Web
IDL spec.
