More precisely, one or two of the people working on the JS engine 
didn't.  I personally think we should, and we should further have some 
sane way of doing things like instanceof cross-global (though that's not 
really a typed array specific problem).

I think you read that wrong.  In the Gecko case it wasn't exposed for 
whatever reason, then the spec was changed to reflect that, then we're 
not going to randomly go violate the spec unless there's a prospect of 
it changing back.  I do think the spec is wrong here, fwiw, as is the 
SpiderMonkey typed array implementation...
