It's an extension. Given that MS promotes its own technologies (.Net and
SilverLight) I don't think they will be interested in including ES4 in IE.

I don't know if there is an ES4 -> classic'JS code generator, like haXe
is doing (http://haxe.org). This way you can target all browsers without
needing some additional language support.
