Judging by this: https://github.com/basho/riak_kv/commit/e895dc730488f699a1ddfb3a988accd289b0a378 the js stuff will be removed entirely in riak 3. I think we can get away with doing it earlier than that though. If no one objects (does anyone else even use riak?) I'll do that in the next update, which should be in the next few weeks.
