AFAIK, "real" DOM doesn't support object reuse anyway, so compliant
DOM code wouldn't need proxies for that reason. I was thinking more
of the general case, of which a mini-dom could optionally support
where a full DOM really wouldn't or shouldn't according to spec.
So, I still like proxies for data (especially grove-like data), but if
1.6 doesn't need 'em for DOM, I'm OK.
