Given that the first word of your abstract is "Contracts", it's
surprising to me that you don't reference any of the quite extensive
literature on software contracts, starting with Bertrand Meyer in the
80s, and continuing with Findler and Felleisen's work on higher-order
contracts over the past 10+ years, which has even been implemented for
JS by Tim Disney using proxies [1].
