Sorry for being unclear.  The practical options to choose between are:

  1. Special case XHR to allow calling it to do the same thing as
     constructing it, and just throw a TypeError for other constructors
     called as functions.

  2. Allow all constructors to be called as functions and have the same
     behaviour.

I’ll make the spec do (2).
