Allen, the last time we tried to specify something like this the spec writer
gave up (querySelector namespace resolver).  Though in that case the problem
was that we needed to look up properties at different times and couldn't look
them up up front...

Also, the one place where this is currently an issue in HTML5 (structured
cloning) totally fails to address this issue.  And so do the IndexedDB bits
that use this pattern, last I checked.

I suppose we can try to get the editors to rewrite those bits in a way that
would prevent problems, and see whether they succeed.
