There has actually been discussion on improving the language. The suggestions 
so far have been very small, but steps nonetheless.

I would like to see improvements to the language and they will likely come, but 
I think there are bigger ticket items which need to come first. XML and E4X 
support for Javascript was one thing I personally felt very strongly about and 
we made that happen.

Async and await are probably the most significant items on your list for me 

Once things settle down a bit, I’d like to see more features start paralleling 
advancements in modern Javascript in general.

The more people we have working on things, the faster improvements will come…
