Hi Travis.

I think it’s fine to point that out in the spec.  Raised a bug for that:

> 2. The configurability of global properties that reference interface objects

Your argument makes sense, and consistency with built-in JS constructor objects
would be good.  I suspect I just chose to make the non-configurable
because that’s what browsers do at the moment.

Raised a bug for that too:

Other opinions welcome…
