If you standardize anything other than "Object", it will be impossible for
implementations written in JavaScript (like this one:
https://github.com/andreasgal/dom.js) to conform, at least in ES5.  

Of course, WebIDL already has [[Class]] and other requirements that are
impossible to conform to in ES5 implementations.

I tend to think that simpler (Object) is better.  But Travis is right that
having interesting values of [[Class]] is nice when debugging.
