I'm not entirely convinced that incremental improvement is the best strategy in
this specific case.

A lot of drafts out there are using WebIDL. If we do incremental improvements
by removing stuff, we'll break them (they'll get fixed over time, but it won't
be pleasant). If we do it by keeping existing constructs alive, we'll end up
with a crufty language. Not everything needs the same upgrading strategies as
the web.

If we get something new and nicer, people can switch over wholesale.
