According to
     http://wiki.ecmascript.org/doku.php?id=harmony:harmony
goal #2 of Harmony is:
     Switch to a testable specification, ideally
     a definitional interpreter hosted mostly in ES5.

Is there much activity toward this goal? The current ES6 drafts are
using mostly the same formalism as ES1 (although there was a marked
de-spaghettification between ES3 and ES5).

(I ask because, in my spare time, I'm developing a process that massages
the ES spec into an executable/testable form. So I wonder if I'm
duplicating existing work.)
