This sort of hypothetical isn't useful; you're not proposing switching
over to *solely* comma-less, you're proposing a *mixture* of comma and
comma-less being allowed.  That has very different ergonomics than
either all-comma or all-comma-less.

The hypothetical comma-less language would also have made many
different syntax decisions over the years to accommodate that, which
current JS has *not* made.  This causes the sorts of problems that
Claude/etc have pointed out.
