No: traits are not currently being considered for ES6. Instead, the
committee chose to go for a more minimal approach that provides better
support for current best practices and patterns based on prototypal
(single-)inheritance.

As a meta-point, notice that the traits/semantics wiki page lives under the
"strawman:" namespace. These are proposals that have not (yet) gained
consensus. Proposals that have reached consensus in the committee live
under the "harmony:" namespace, cf. <
http://wiki.ecmascript.org/doku.php?id=harmony:proposals>.

Cheers,
Tom
