--- Comment #3 from Boris Zbarsky <bzbarsky@mit.edu> ---
frozen-ness is not the right thing.

The point of readonly or fixed-length arrays is to return an arraylike object
to a caller with the following properties:

1)  The caller can read things from the arraylike.
2)  The caller cannot write things to the arraylike.
3)  The _callee_ can write things to the arraylike as needed.

Most cases where you'd not want the callee to later modify the object just want
pass-by-value semantics and actual JS arrays.
