Need a champion? StringView strawman

https://bugs.ecmascript.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1557 is a request that StringView [1] over ArrayBuffers  be added to ES.

The current StringView proposal is a WebIDL based design and not particularly integrated into the ES6 Typed Array support, the ES6 Unicode support, or the post ES6 "Binary Data" work.  It isn't clear to me exactly how much, if any,  momentum this proposal has in any standards process outside of TC39.  However, if something like it is going to emerge TC39 should be involved early to ensure that it is well integrated into ES.

It sounds to me like we need a TC39 champion (or perhaps an anti-champioin) to shepherd this work in the context of the new TC39 development process.  Any volunteers? I can help but have limited time available for this right now.
