That's not what I asked - I asked what the words meant.

What do you mean by "JavaScript proxy" in this context, and what
property of the named getter means that the proxy can't be implemented
in any other language (such as C++)?

I have no doubt that you have reasons for your opinion, but as long as I
don't understand what you mean by the words you use to describe those
reasons, I can't treat it much differently from "the gostak distims the
doshes". (google it for references - I remember it best from the Andrew
Breuer story).
