--- Comment #2 from Travis Leithead [MSFT] <travil@microsoft.com> ---
I think that [] was going to be able to replace all usages of *List or
*Collection that are preexisting in the DOM (e.g., NodeList, HTMLCollection). 

Are you saying that it's better to just have specific interfaces that describe
their specific behavior, than introduce a generic [] array-type that can handle
all these scenarios?

My guidance to internal teams at Microsoft has always centered around when to
return unique instances per call (use sequence) or singleton objects with
mutating array contents (use [] or *List/*Collection, etc.).
