if you want to enforce that in userland now, you have even higher performance implications. I wouldn't worry about the performance of edge cases and take away a feature for everybody else because of that. If there's a better internal implementation, it can always be improved later. > Regarding constructor call, upon first initialization of object, you are > allowed to assign values to properties, after constructor is executed, > object is locked.

If we both agree it would be the better way, why not draft an RFC for it and find someone who knows how to implement it?
