I do not think this makes sense. E.g. EventSource requires an argument to  
its constructor that is needed for it to function. There is no reason for  
people be able to create an XMLHttpRequestUpload object. No idea what that  
would even do.

If you want interfaces to gain constructors we should do so in a  
considered manner. Not having it everywhere and then trying to sort out  
the mess.
