Dear Jonathan,

A number of examples in Java is desirable as it is also used in addition 
to ECMAScript on mobile devices, but the proportion needs to be more 
balanced and we are in the process of translating a number of those 
examples to ECMAScript, along with annotations indicating which language 
the example is in, and with a preference for translating to ES examples 
that involve getter/setter methods.

Thank you for your comments,
