Not unless we want them to.

That's how I've defined it in IndexedDB.

Since I wrote the IDL for indexeddb above, WebIDL has gotten support
for "static" which should do what we want. Though it's a bit unclear
if using a real interface would cause there to be a .prototype
property on the URL interface which we for now don't want, right. It's
also unclear if static functions appear on URL objects as well.
