Internal properties are really just conceptual definitions anyway, they're not
expected to exist on the property internally necessarily.

I don't believe there is a way to expose arbitrary internal properties from ES5
objects.

I define the class string solely to avoid redefining [[Class]], to make it
possible for pure JS implementations to have Object.prototype.toString behave
appropriately.  I think at some point ECMAScript is going to gain an internal
property like this, but I don't think they have done so yet.  When they do, we
can rewrite Web IDL to use that rather having the "class string" definition.

I don't think it makes sense to have all platform objects return "[object
Platform]".
