Review of attachment 8497926 [details] [diff] [review]:

r=me with tiny nits addressed. Amazing that we didn't have any tests for throwing on primitives here. :(

For patches as simple as this one, you can just start a try server run right when asking for review. (As always for things like this: Linux (64 or 32, doesn't matter) only, debug only, all tests except Talos.) Then, once the reviewer gives an r+, you can either set checkin-needed directly, or upload a new version with nits addressed, carry over the r+, and note which comment the try run can be found in. If you think that, even though the reviewer gave an r+, the needed changes warrant another try run, just do that and mention it when uploading the final patch.

Spec note: I'm not particularly convinced that `success = !!(Object.seal(false))` is particularly good behavior. But then again, it also doesn't matter much: calling seal on primitives really just isn't something one should do. Also, the spec is the spec. (In this case, because I don't think it's important enough to get into discussions about. In other cases, we do give feedback to tc39 and try to fix errors.
