Javascript is indeed also part of the equation, but that doesn't
seem to make things essentially more complicated. Javascript is
just one more format where identifiers have to be alligned.

[One can also consider the case of a script doing very special
things with identifiers such as class names, chopping them in
half between two accents and such, but I think this case is way
too farfetched.]

Can you point to any specific languages,... that will be affected?
Or why do you otherwise think that this problem will become bigger?

Regards,    Martin.
