Pretty much -- the guards and trademarking proposals came in at the May meeting, kind of last minute. We could start worrying about Dart and try to revive them. Would that be good for ES6? Would it actually "work" in some sense to keep up with Dart?

I think it would be classic mission creep or "jump", and a disorderly way to manage the pipeline of stuff flowing into JS. Better to get some prototypes going based on the strawman proposals, user-test them, and come back to TC39 better informed. If Dart also provides insights, great.
