Whomever adds delete/continue back to the spec needs to inline into
the spec an explanation of why it's ok per ES5.

Most (all) of us grew up pre ES5 and *believe* that they're truly
reserved keywords and that what you're doing is invalid.

So without inlining the explanation into the spec, you're asking for
people to think you're crazy.

Personally, i think trying to mark something as locally unreserved is
crazy, since you're fighting the web's collective knowledge.

http://javascript.about.com/od/reference/g/rdelete.htm
Definition: The delete statement deletes an object that was created
using the new statement. Delete is a reserved word and cannot be used
for anything other than deleting an object.

Note that it seems clear that people here do not care about the web's
collective knowledge, so I'm not asking you to stop.
