I should add: I have been following AdSafe and Google Caja with
interest. But I don't see how ES4 makes your subset any bigger, unless
it has new features authors need/want. :)

It's not all disagreement, though. One aspect of Google Caja seems
preferable to me: the JSON object. In fact, I would like the committee
to drop the JSON methods on the object prototype in favor of letting
host environments provide that API.


Fighting over the name is pointless. It's not a good name, and web
developers call it "JavaScript". It seems like the right choice to
represent the output of the ECMA committee, though.
