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".

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.
