In the wifi API, we want to be able to return an object that can update itself, but is otherwise readonly to DOM content. We want to be able to use a dictionary to do this and bz informs me that this will be possible with a small change to codegen.

We don't know at handleExtendedAttribute time what the identifier will
map to, so have to do the check that [Frozen] is not being misused
later.

I filed bug 963382 on clearing the cached values from JS, since we don't have a way of doing that for readonly properties yet.  That part isn't really dictionary-specific.

Whiteboard: [need review]
I assume we will have something testing this from JS.
Once bug 886110 is fixed, presumably.
