It's not an opinion or a bug, it's just a question in fact ;-)

My question is: should we keep reference of objects using a weakmap or a
reference table or is it fine to simply loop forever (the browser will
ultimately kill the script)?

What do browser do today (even if the situation don't happen, what would they
do if I added the necessary interface but changed no other code whatsoever)?
