Lars had some very useful feedback on the June 11 ES3.1 draft that we have tried to incorporate into the July 4 draft.  I promised several people that  I would provide a detailed listing of the resolutions to Lars' issues. It is attached. In the document, a double strike out means that we have directly taken Lars' suggestion or otherwise resolved the issue in line with his comments.  Single strike through means I think we have resolved (or at least noted) the issue, although perhaps differently than Lars had suggested.  Items with no strike outs are still unresolved. In all cases, italic text are my comments. And "I" means Allen Wirfs-Brock and may or may not reflect the opinion of anybody else who is actively contributing to the ES3.1 specification draft.

Attaching comments.

In general this looks pretty clean.  (Some obvious missing parts excepted.)  Of the things that do not look clean I want to single out three worries specifically: That your strict mode is overreaching, that too much (any!) emphasis is placed on catering to a non-existent "secure subset" language, and that strict compatibility has not been maintained with JS1.6/1.7/1.8 in the methods incorporated from those specifications.  See the comments for details.  Also, there are numerous occasions where the proposed language is incompatible with Proposed ES4, so we have work to do to reconcile them.

I have uploaded to the wiki (link<>, see under "Draft Specification") the current draft of the specification for ES3.1. This is in the form of in-place edits and markups to the ES3 specification. Revision history is at the end of the document.
