What semantics in particular, can you pick on something specific  
that's not in your classes as sugar proposal (rather than have me  
guess)? BTW, since you missed the cuts in the spreadsheet, you may  
have missed the optional type checker being cut too: 'use strict' is  
good-taste mode, a la Perl and in accord with discussions we've had  
at the last two TC39 meetings.

Thanks for the kind words, although since neither 3.1 nor 4 is done  
yet, specific constructive criticism is even better.
