You can simply use the Symbol.iterator property to configure how you want the property and value of the object to be iterated. This will allow you to use any from of iteration; e.g. For loop while loop forEach if you do the generic way I'm thinking .

If this help. Post me some link to resources that you have found on your journey as a js dev.

It seems that after the call for a strawman in the meeting notes from April 2014, there was silence? asks the same. I don't really know whether it's more useful to continue replying here or pull up that thread (is one month "old" by es-discuss standards?). Either way, it would be useful to know what the current status is, which none of the posts/notes that I saw really clarify.
