If this were 1995, *and* we had a sound library mechanism with the  
right identity and security guarantees, I would agree.  But at this  
point I agree with Lars: "ECMAScript needs to be a rich language with  
features that are immediately useful to its core audiences, and which  
play well with each other in the sense that they have unsurprising  
consequences when composed."
