Yes I am.  That was written before the use case of whole DOMs implemented in JS
came up.  All of the language distinguishing "host objects" and "native
objects" really needs to be rewritten using terms like "implementation objects"
and "user objects" or so.

If you have an ECMAScript DOM implementation, and an author writes something
like that in comment 1, should we be requiring that to fail?  I think the
answer to that is yes, since we want consistent behaviour across
implementations in this regard, and it would be a lot of spec and
implementation effort for little benefit to require that to work, I think.
