The goal here (as far as I know) is NOT to do something for the benefit of the
specification.  It's to do something for the benefit of the language.

You could say this is just a semantic argument, but I don't consider allowing
expressions where previously only string literals were allowed is another
"feature": it's just making an existing feature more flexible.

While it's true that more tests might need to be written, such a change is
completely backwards compatible: all existing examples and tests would still be
valid.

As far as delaying the finalization of the recommendation: do you want it fast
or right?
