I think you forgot to include Rhino. There's still quite a few who
haven't migrated over to Nashorn, since Rhino has a widely differing
API. It's no longer as actively maintained, but it still has a
substantial user base. (It's ES5 compatible, but has no ES6 features.)
Also, IIRC, Nashorn has made attempts to implement ES6, so I wouldn't
consider it pure ES5 anymore.
