What do you expect to be difficult? I foresee that it's going to be *a 
lot* of work on both sides (W3C/WHATWG & TC39) to move this major piece 
from one place to another without breaking anything. But I would say 
it's a lot of "easy" work. It's going to take a lot of eyeballs and 
probably tests to make sure what the new spec jonction between HTML LS 
and ES7 conforms to what exists in reality (expecially in the new prose).
Is there a particular part of this work that you expect to be difficult.
