yes, those have been eliminated

yes, next(value) replaces send(value)

No, yield produces a nextResult object. The last line of the yield runtime semantics in 184.108.40.206 is:
Return the result of GeneratorYield(CreateItrResultObject(value, false)).
Note that a iteration result object is being created and passed to the abstract operation at does the actual context switch.

No. via a object that implements the ItrResult (name subject to change) interface as specified in 220.127.116.11
