I would too, I assume this is based on Mark's proposal for Classes as Sugar 
(http://www.mail-archive.com/es4-discuss@mozilla.org/msg01624.html). 
However, Mark's proposal seems pretty vague in the area of typing, so I am 
curious how this would work as well. Would there be new 
functionality/semantics for defining types on properties (via defineProperty 
in ES3.1, sugared in ES4) with some type of object structures like I 
suggested in
