We've been debating various forms of classes in JS since the late '90s. That's right; we've been circling this drain for <em>more than a decade</em>...some worry that a form of <code>class</code> in ES6 that doesn't make coffee for you while also shooting rainbows out of it's behind won't be worth the syntactic space it takes up....Rainbow-shooting technology takes a while to build, meanwhile, wouldn't it be great if we could get a cup of joe around here?
It's important for serious platforms to have a stable conceptual model of what's 'down there'. For Java that's not the language, it's the JVM. For the web...well...um. We must do better. So what does that look like? Layering, and lots of it.
