Are you specifically asking about my "big spiel"? I stated that disallowing
any new syntax (not just let/const) in non-strict mode would result in
stunted adoption and "too many rules" confusion. Despite my belief that
strict mode is the right mode, I also asserted that it's simply unrealistic
to think that new syntax is a big enough carrot.

Important to note that I'm not speaking for anyone that reads or
participates on this list.
