I listed every harmony:proposals (eventually -- some eluded me) on the
white board and we worked through them, evaluating how they could work
in non-strict code. That was the list with ? or x next to any proposal
with questions or overt (we thought) compatibility problems.
We eventually solved all the cases that survived (typeof null == "null"
died). This means new ES6 features work in non-strict code. Great news!
We need some experiments to prove that those early x marks can be
removed. For instance, const and function-in-block require
switch to the ES6 semantics in non-strict code and see what breaks.
