Naively, I would guess something like...

var o = {};
var m = Object.observe(new Map(), function(change) {
  console.log( change );
});

m.set(o, 1);

// Produces
[
  {
    key: ...a reference to `o`
    object: ...a reference to `m`
    type: "new"
  }
]

(the key reference to `o` is my concern point for Weak* object observation)


...Of course, this is just made-up for the sake of entertaining a question
that I don't have a better answer for ;)
