Hi Axel, I'm glad you're asking the right question. To clarify for everyone,
"EcmaScript-Harmony" (or just "Harmony") names our agreed trajectory for the
language following ES5. We understand that the goals of this trajectory will
take several new editions to realize. "ES-next" is our working name for the
next edition along this trajectory, likely to be named "ES6".

So, not having need proposed or sanctioned prior to the May meeting cutoff
date, I'd say the chances of this making ii into ES-next are vanishingly
small. However, it is consistent with the overall goals for Harmony, so
yes. Just because it's not a candidate for ES-next is no reason to
postponing discussing it on es-discuss of course. I would very much like to
see something along these lines become standard in some later edition.
