I would like to see us take a principled stance on resource exhaustion
errors in ES7. This includes both stack and heap, and both space and time.
For example, the browser behavior on terminating a turn that takes too long
and proceeding silently to the next turn leaves arbitrary invariants
broken. Other resource exhaustion conditions cause the same problems.
