Re: Contacts API -- [NoInterfaceObject]

Note that using instanceof is discouraged by Web IDL [1]. In theory that argument also applies to cases where someone modifies the prototype in the case where one runs into an object from the wrong Window. At least OWA used to use a popup window for directory lookup, so conceptually such a problem could happen.

I'm not sure about the history of why nointerfaceobject was added. My guesses would include wanting to avoid polluting global scope and a copy-paste pattern.

I'm not specifically defending this part of the spec - in fact, it struck me as odd - but...
