OK.

A formal bugtracker has some advantages, too. Can organize, prioritize
bugs and feature requests, add comments, testcases.

Buglist:
  Function.prototype.toString -> s/FunctionDeclaration/FunctionExpression.
  Error instances have a message property, but it is not specified (as
mentioned previously)
  RegularExpressionLiteral is missing from Annex A.1 Lexical Grammar

Wishlist:
  A bugtracker (just one) for Harmony and ES5
  Error stack, either instance property or as a getter on Error.prototype
  Top level Array Generics

Other interesting proposals:
  Regex feature requests from Steve Levithan's Regex pages
