No commitment from the group yet to do this.

Again no commitment yet from TG1 to pursue this.

I personally believe that the unsound, untestable/non-executable ES3  
spec is a rathole we should avoid. The errata (which are not complete  
by a long shot) that we have hosted at 
language/E262-3-errata.html would have to be incorporated, again with  
high risk of bugs and no way to test. I think we are much better off  
working on the ES4 refimpl and the spec derived in part from it.
