Are you sure there's really a "maybe" for methods ?
Methods' functions have access to (at least) the sender's global context and contexts can't be shared, how to deal with that if not by prohibiting methods ?

WRT to prototypes, to keep it simple, I think .__proto__ should be null, because we can't pass (and make unreachable) things like Object.prototype :-)
