No, and this should be clear to anyone following the es*-discuss lists  
(either list -- but you have to read all the messages). The draft  
ES3.1 specs make clear what's in or maybe-in, and we've had many  
messages (including very recently) about ES3.1 ins and outs.

You'll have to read the source for SpiderMonkey or Rhino (both  
implement these now, I believe).
