One approach is to not describe a features as "being in ES6"  until after it first appears in an actual ES6 draft.   From that perspective, what is currently "in" (or at least will be as soon as I upload a new draft) are let/const/function block scoped declarations, destructuring assignment/declarations/parameters, default parameter values, and the rest parameter. Probably a few other really minor things, too.
