In particular, the structured clone code says to create a property with the same name, but doesn't discuss any of the property flags.

It also sounds like accessor properties will be turned into data properties whose value is the value returned by the getter, right?

Status: Partially Accepted
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: The spec already mentions that property configurations are not preserved. Does it need to be made more explicit? I guess I can explicitly give the configuration of the new properties, would that be better? If so, what should it say, exactly? I am not familiar with this new configuration stuff.
