Two points:
- IIRC, attributes such as onclick are not yet solved, the ideas proposed sounded like a BRS, so maybe the two solutions can be combined.
- If we keep in the back of our minds the possibility of using the BRS as ES6 opt-in, while going forward with "One JavaScript" (1JS), both approaches can be tested in the wild. I’m mostly sold on 1JS, but a few doubts remain, trying out the BRS "clean cut" solution for Unicode will either allay or confirm those doubts.
