I remember ArrayClass removed from NodeList for the reason of lack of implementations, and even plans for implementation, glad to see it’s not dead, and I indeed missed CSSOM when I checked what parts of IDL was used in some specifications. At least it means there is no need to remove ArrayClass from the edcopy :)

Currently maplike/setlike/ RegExp [Unscopeable] [PrimaryGlobal] [ImplicitThis], most probably iterable. But of course this is also subject to the number of bugs attached to them, issues with test etc... So many things will still be considered “at risk”.
I didn’t see any trace of [ImplicitThis] either, so that will make it hard to test (the Window interface given in the example is no longer using it).

Ah indeed no, and now I wonder why I added it in my list… (so as no specs seems to use them, I don’t think there are implementations around).
