MyElement.prototype certainly has Element.prototype on _its_ proto chain, but that's a separate concern from what happens with the interface objects...  Is this something that ES6 classes define differently from current WebIDL and implementations, and if so, do we need to align the two somehow?

Yes ES6 has "class-side" inheritance.  The ES5 equivalent for:

   class Sub extends Super {
       constructor() {/*constructor body */ }
       method1 () {}
       static method2 {}


  function Sub() {/*constructor body */ }
  Sub.__proto__ = Super;
  Sub.prototype = Object.create(Super.prototype);
  Sub.prototype.method1 = function method1() {};
  Sub.method2 = function method2 () {}; looks first looks for a own property on Sub, then on Super, etc.
