I'm not sure exactly how we are going to specify tail calls.  I know that Dave Herman has ideas that I assume we will build upon .

For weak maps I think that a non-normative note that make explicit the "doesn't leak" expectation and points implementors towards an ephemeron based implementation will suffice.
