I think that in the case of an InvocationHandler, in particular, that the method would be of interest and possibly used to key to other data. If there is no constant representation, it seems very problematic to me.

Foo#bar() is constant but with foo an instance of Foo, foo#bar () is not 

I wonder if the best is not to do not allow the syntax instance#method_ref
and only to allow the syntax Class#method_ref which is constant.
