Indeed. Two notable answers by Mark Miller [1] [2] indicate an intention
to bring setTimeout to ECMAScript.
The basic idea would to be to make Q.delay [3] a native construct of the
language (and specify setTimeout and setInterval as implementations
based on Q.delay (with clamping where necessary for compat reasons)).
All this work would come along the work on concurrency which would bring
the event loop in ECMAScript.
