Currently Web IDL does not provide the "this" value a static method was 
invoked with to the implementation of the static method.

However, it seems like supporting subclassing might require access to 
this object.  For example, Promise.resolve actually uses the "this" 
value to construct the promise to be returned...

Is this an unlikely edge case, or should we adjust Web IDL to pass in 
the this value?
