The section on the structured cloning algorithm has a Note that says

> "Property descriptors, setters, getters, and analogous features are not
> copied in this process."

Is this note part of the normative definition of the algorithm, or just a
non-normative helpful explanatory note?  The typographic convention
description set out in section 1.8.2 doesn't say either way.

Do getters need to be called to obtain a value which can be stored (after
being cloned itself) in the result?
