I believe that is not allowed by the current spec, and will result in
a TypeError. It seems the intention of WebGL is that the second
argument is a WebGLContextAttributes object (though the WebGL spec
currently lacks the IDL defining that), in which case
http://dev.w3.org/2006/webapi/WebIDL/#es-interface is relevant. The
"{...}" object is not a host object, and WebGLContextAttributes
doesn't satisfy the criteria for allowing native object
implementations, so this won't work.

You'd have to say

  var attr = new WebGLContextAttributes();
  attr.antialias = "false";

Then (with the current definitions) you could already say

  attr.antialias = false;

because the NameSetter takes a DOMString argument, so the value on the
JS side will be automatically converted to a string (in this case
