Window itself is even more of a special case. What I had in mind is  
objects hanging off of Window that are accessible to a limited extent  
cross-origin, such as History, or Location, or the postMessage  
function. I don't think it would work to give those a blank prototype.  
And you can't just give them the prototype chain from their home  
window because that would be an XSS violation.
