I think the only sane thing is allowing subclasses.

Right now webidl just talks about "objects implementing the interface" or some
such, but we can formalize that as desired.  And I think it's desired to
formalize it in a way that makes subclassing work.  As Anne, says, @@create
inheritance makes this reasonable.
