<object> and <embed> elements are callable in Gecko as well: they have a 
[[Call]] and typeof(document.createElement("embed")) === "function".

Their prototype chain does not chain up to Function.prototype, though, 
and I'm not sure whether it's possible to create that setup in pure ES 
right now.

I rather doubt that making typeof(nodelist) === "function" is 
web-compatible, though we could test that theory...
