I've added the following statement to the spec:

   The [NoInterfaceObject] extended attribute SHOULD NOT be used on
   interfaces that are not solely used as supplemental or callback
   interfaces, unless there are clear Web compatibility reasons for
   doing so.


Please let me know if you find this resolution satisfactory.
