​​I would be significantly less excited about it if this happens. The
ability to pass around "lightly" bound references to methods is a big deal
imo and a large part of the value in this proposal.

Like you said it doesn't matter what train it gets on, if the new release
cadence for ES works as we all hope then it should ultimately stop
mattering what release a feature is officially spec'd in. Ideally once a
feature reaches candidate stage it should be considered ready, right?
