You're right that "any other type object" wording is troublesome; I too eagerly
merged some of the steps in there.  I think we still want platform objects that
support indexed properties to be able to be passed as sequence<T> types.

How about this:

http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/2006/webapi/WebIDL/Overview.xml.diff?r1=1.582;r2=1.584;f=h

Note that this continues to disallow native Array objects from being passed as
dictionary, callback interface and callback function values.
