Proposal: syntactic sugar for extracting fields from objects

Wouldn't it be nice to have syntax like this:
const obj = { {firstName, lastName from user.profile}, otherData: 'other
data'  };
as a syntactic sugar for
const obj = {firstName: user.profile.firstName, lastName:
user.profile.lastName, otherData: 'other data'};

Of cause at the moment we can write it in two steps:
const {fistName, lastName} = userProfile;
const obj = {firstName, lastName, otherData: 'other data'}

But why use extra variables?

Motivating example is lodash's .pick() method:
