I think it would make sense to exclude [NoPrototypeObject] interfaces from 
consideration here.

IMHO this is a problem. I don't think that UA extensions should affect the 
[[Class]], and I think that other specs should have a way (e.g. 
[NoPrototypeObject]) of always making sure they don't affect the [[Class]] 
of existing stuff.
