For green-field things, I would prefer just using an Array for now, then 
doing subclassing once it's implemented.

For legacy stuff, subclassing Array is not an option thus far, because 
none of the JS engines support subclassing yet.  This has nothing to do 
with WebIDL limitations; it's a V8/SpiderMonkey/Chakra/JSC limitation.

You mean [ArrayClass]?  Yes, it does.

Consider [NoInterfaceObject], you mean?  I could probably live with 
that, yes.
