Eich on Javascript's future

Via Slashdot, I see that Brendan Eich, the original designer of Javascript (and who's still actively involved in the development of Mozilla) is publicly discussing the future of the language. If he's really open to suggestions I want to think about what I'd most like to see put in there.

Usually, my stock complaint for most languages is the lack of support for recursion. But for compiler output, the needs may be quite different. I really need to go to bed, but I'll think about this.

JS:yes vs JS:no

is not sufficient

Let us decide which properties and methods will be permitted globally- or on a site by site basis

power is mine?
