I'm leaning in that direction. A unbound function has an unbound (dynamic) this while a bound function has a bound (fixed) this.
To further clarify this it might be useful to better differentiate binding this from currying the arguments.
We might do this by adding a new Function.prototype.curry function that doesn't have a this value as its first argument.
You would then
If you want to create a curried function from fn with 1 and 2 as the first two fn arguments. And:
if you want to create a bound version of fn where this is bound to the value of foo.
The semantics of
could then be explained as being equivalent to
