Perhaps a minor point, but the part that is not implementable in pure JS 
is having document.all be callable while having it also be typeof 
"object".  I haven't heard of any of the other collection objects that 
currently have callers in the spec being required to be typeof "object", 
so IF we were to decide that the pattern of callable objects in general 
was desirable (and I am not nearly convinced that it is) then we could 
define those ones to be Function objects, and leave document.all to be 
the odd one.
