Can you imagine what the JS world today would have been had the ES4 proposal become a reality? As someone who made games and websites in Flash and whose first programming language was ActionScript, the only working implementation of the ES4 standard today, I can offer first hand experience on that. And while Flash might be dead today, a lot of the things that ActionScript offered are slowly making its way in the present in the form of ES6 and TypeScript.
