scary eval to create the most safe environment ever

Are you worried about Array redefinition?
Are you worried about eval function redefinition?
Are you worried about whatever you want redefinition?
With the incredible eval feature "discovered" few days ago, it possible to create the most safe environment ever for every kind of purpose, starting from JSON evaluation, arriving to total protected native constructors.

const safeEnvironment = function(A, B, D, F, N, O, R, S){
const Array = A,
Boolean = B,
Date = D,
Function= F,
Number = N,
Object = O,
RegExp = R,
String = S,
eval = function(String){
return self.eval("(" + String + ")");
return new function(){};

With above piece of code you can evaluate every kind of script without to be worried about common XSS or evaluation problems.

eval("Array=function(){}; alert(Array);", safeEnvironment);
function Array(){
[native code]

Seems to be hilarious, isn't it? The most scary Gecko function let us redefine entirely an environment, using constants to create immutable values that will be present in the virtual sandboxed scope.

So, the paradox, is that with Gecko eval, we could create the perfect safe environment, that could be used for every purpose, starting from the NoScript stuff.

Please, help me to convince Mozilla staff that second argument is not dangerous and could make our code execution safer than ever, thank you!
