Okay, let the author define the constructor.

We can solve this problem by using JavaScript "object path" as opposed to a variable name.

So instead of:
<template register="my-button" interface="MyButton">

We allow:
var my = {views:{MyButton: ~}};
<template register="my-button" interface="my.views.MyButton">

While this requires some variable to be exposed on the global scope, libraries and frameworks do this already, and authors could use document.register to avoid that altogether if they really wanted.
