This is a good question, I don't see also why it will be very difficult...
It seems most of the features we are talking about are exposed off window
object that already has custom getters. Also, if it can be assumed that the
flags don't change during lifetime of the browser process (which is true for
Chromium-like command-line flags) then it is not needed to reset script
state and caches on change. It might be not a very complex change...
