I've filed with a 
patch to do this.  The specific behavior I'm implementing is that the 
prototype of the interface object for interface X is the interface 
object of the nearest ancestor of X that has one, and Function.prototype 
if there is no such ancestor.

So for example, with that patch Object.getPrototypeOf(HTMLElement) == 
Element, and Object.getPrototypeOf(XMLHttpRequest) == EventTarget.

Note that this doesn't quite match the proto chain, because 
Object.getPrototypeOf(XMLHttpRequest.prototype) is the prototype object 
for the XMLHttpRequestEventTarget interface, but that interface is
