If we drop the stringifier, I think the result of trying to interpret 
the object as a string is "{ object object }", which is well defined, 
but kind of useless.

I wouldn't mind dropping it until we find a good reason to standardize 
it; people who want a particular stringification can write their own 
stringifiers.
