I would tend to be rather in disfavour of anything that might cause  
WebIDL to be delayed in any way. I also think that keeping the ES3  
binding is useful (in the short term at least) if only because it is  
familiar, which might point to building the ES5 one separately.

If at all possible I'd rather it went to LC ASAP, and if needed that  
new stuff be done in a branched document.
