It's not syntax sugar, it's an API simplification: as far as scripts are
concerned, neuterable, closable, transferable objects are are all the same
thing, yet the APIs are needlessly diverging, giving an inconsistent, piecemeal
API.  (Similarly, ArrayBuffer is missing .close.)

I filed a new bug because reopening the one I saw (#17757) didn't make sense
(since it was just about a note).
