Exceptional Situations in Javascript

Was any consideration given to adding the ability to handle  
exceptions in Javascript the way they are handled in [Lisp](http:// 
www.nhplace.com/kent/Papers/Exceptional-Situations-1990.html)?

In particular, I really miss the ability to handle an exception in  
the exception context (as opposed to only after the stack has unwound  
to a try block).  Compared to the DOM level 2 event handling,  
Javascript exception handling seems weak.
