I must have missed it if so -- do the notes record it?

As Andreas Rossberg points out, ES6 will take years to be fully 
implemented. The more we speculate (lay bets), the bigger our potential 

At this point, I personally want to see ES6 more spec'ed *and* 
implemented (not saying it's not spec'ed fully, the lag is on the 
implementation side -- but that can feed back on the spec).

Anything further, even a "simple" (hah!) thing like naming, seems 
somewhere between "good intentions to try out on the wider community" 
and "hubris". Let's avoid the latter. I think we're soaking in the former.
