there's a discussion to web-standardize zstandard-compression, which digressed somewhat on javascript language-stability [1].  they want to improve performance over existing zlib using context-specific js/html/css/etc dictionaries.  however, the primary author of zstandard [and lz4] laments that over a 10-year span studying [albeit small number of] websites, there were no stable design-patterns suitable for “permanent” dictionaries (not just js, but html and everything else as well).  anyway, he provided snippet of keys used in the current js-dictionary, which i found interesting and wanted to share:

js:
return true;
return false}
Number.isInteger
d.type="text/javascript";
