I think I'd want it treated similar to the way let and yield are treated by SpiderMonkey, where using either as an argument or identifer turns off their use in the new ways, as an implementation-dependent option, but where they're still keywords in ES4 code.)

This was a case in SpiderMonkey for a short period of time during
FireFox 2.0 development. Before the release let and yield were turned
into unconditional keywords. They require explicit version js1.7
setting to be active. See for the reasons.
