Thanks. I though mentioned also, there is no big need to provide some alternative fancy examples of doing some action in JS. I'm pretty sure everyone on this list know/understand how the designed methods (which are discussed on this list) work and how they can be applied in alternative ways. And I also don't wanna bikeshead on how this two lines are better than Object.values(...) from the user-level perspective.

I'm not super concern about having this or that API method, but I just don't a reason not to have one if it's convenient and may help to make developers' live easier.

Anyways, cool example though, thanks for sharing.
