No I more-or-less agree with your spiel.
I'm unclear why the group considered let/const is an issue for sloppy mode.

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.
