Thou shall yield to the superior naming of creative spec editors! Pretty funny/sad that setImmediate() (argh, hard to spell!) is not even in the ToC :)  

Anyway, I think this one could be a good feature for the group to work on. It's nice and small, has a lot of utility, all the bits are in place (e.g., bugs have already been filed on browsers, and one browser already implements!) … and it would give us an opportunity to lay down some kind of work mode around here.
