All ECMAScript attributes should be non-configurable


In the current form of WebIDL, if i run the following code (in a
WebIDL-compliant environment):
var o = Event.prototype;
delete o.currentTarget; // works with any other attributes
Then, all events afterward will not have a currentTarget property (since
it's gone from the interface).
In the DOM event spec, "currentTarget" is defined as an attribute on the
Event.prototype object. This property must be a configurable (since not
[[Unforgeable]]). Consequently, any script can remove it and events will
no longer have a currentTarget property which is not what anyone want.

Consequently, I would suggest to consider all attributes to be
non-configurable regardless of [[Unforgeab(le)]]-ility.
