Thanks Dave,

Of the 3 use cases you mentioned, I think unique names are probably
sufficient for 1 and 3.  For the second use case (an inaccessible piece of
data associated with an object), would not a weak map also be appropriate?

So far I don't see that the benefit of private names (as opposed to just
unique names) outweighs the additional object model complexity.  As far as
I can tell, all of the use cases for private names can be addressed with
unique names and weak maps.  Am I wrong?
