FWIW:

We had a similar discussion in IE when deciding what attributes to give "const"
properties. During Beta, we had the properties as configurable, but later
changed our minds and made them fully "const" to emphasize the meaning of the
term. 

So now, in IE9 RTM, we have:

>> Object.getOwnPropertyDescriptor(Node, "ELEMENT_NODE") 
{
    value : 1,
    writable : false,
    enumerable : true,
    configurable : false
}
