So how exactly would we change DOMException to use this new model and what
would happen to .code checking? (As that is definitely out there.)

I guess I do not really see the problem with minting new constants when needed
and adding them to DOMException and just have .name as a convenient checking
method. Before having e.name == "SYNTAX_ERR" (where e is a DOMException as it
is today) was not deemed problematic, why is it now?
