WebIDL contains an "ECMAScript binding" section where are defined WebIDL 
semantics for ECMAScript as well as ECMAScript-specific extended 
attributes. So if something had to be said about interaction with 
proxies, that'd probably be there.
I imagine that the safe default (throwing on proxies) should be defined 
somewhere in 4.4.6 and 4.4.7 (attribute and operation ECMAScript 
semantics) and the opt-in to accept proxies should be somewhere around. 
I'm not sure where and how exactly yet, (that's why I have expressed 
high-level intentions and not specifically suggested changes).
