Yes super is a keyword and had been reserved for a long time. I don't
necessarily disagree with your premise about introducing new keywords that
aren't reserved but the current tc39 policy on this is to not due to the
high likelihood that it breaks current user code.

This conversation could go very different if that policy were amended and
if you think you have a way to do this that doesn't break existing user
code I would suggest submitting that as a proposal.
