You mean at the point where we set ignoreNamedProps to true in
http://heycam.github.io/webidl/#getownproperty-guts step 1.3?

It's possible that this predates the change to make [[DefineOwnProperty]] just
disallow adding indexed-looking props, assuming it ever allowed it.  So back
then you could have expandos with integer names and those were supposed to get
picked up via step 3.

That said, I guess someone _could_ in theory define an unforgeable thing named
"_1" (in the IDL) on an interface with indexed props.  That seems silly and we
should not support it.  So I think you're right that we could just return here
if we wanted to, though it should be equivalent to fall through, since we know
step 3 won't find anything.

Note that we do still need the ignoreNamedProps thing in general, for [[Set]]
to work right.
