CallExpression [ <identifier-string> ]
where <identifier-string> is a string literal containing the same sequence of characters as the Identifier.
The production MemberExpression : MemberExpression [ Expression ] is evaluated as follows:
1. Evaluate MemberExpression.
2. Call GetValue(Result(1)).
3. Evaluate Expression.
4. Call GetValue(Result(3)).
5. Call ToObject(Result(2)).
6. Call ToString(Result(4)).
7. Return a value of type Reference whose base object is Result(5) and whose property name is Result(6).
Since step 6 converts the key to a string before it is used as a property name (defined in S8.7), there is no difference between foo[-Infinity] and foo['-Infinity'] as long as evaluating the reference 'Infinity' yields the value Infinity without side-effect.
