Note that the WindowProxy overrides are not necessarily web-compatible.  See

That said, we could try the same thing for Location, sure.  It just seems like
a extra risk (though still less than for WindowProxy, but since we've just
established that the risk for WindowProxy is "we know it breaks some sites"
that's a pretty low bar).

The benefit of only doing the weirdness for the IDL-defined props is that it
minimizes risk: no one is defining properties with those names on Location
objects, because those properties are already non-configurable on Location
