For methods that make use of their window, like postMessage, that we wish to
still make use of their window when called as a function, I think that
change is good and important. Remember that all future versions of
JavaScript are a successor only of ES5.1/strict. Non-strict is a dead end,
so we should not try to use it to explain the behavior of host objects.
Thanks.
