An ES6 proxy could do the trick here.

As Tab suggested, a Map subclass could certainly work

"ordered list of key-value pairs"
=> Both objects and maps can be ordered list of key-value pairs (objects 
can be more with getters and setters, but we don't need to care about that)
The ordered part for objects wasn't true in ES5 (implementation specific 
order), but is considered for ES6 [1] since all web engines do the same 
order which some content relies on, making it a de facto standard.
