Hi Travis.

I think it should (and does currently for ES3 by virtue of saying
whether particular properties have the DontDelete attribute).  If we
decide to update the whole section (or add a separate one) for ES3.1
then yes we should also state this behaviour by giving the value of the
[[Flexible]] attribute.
