So what about this part of the proposal?  Presumably there are reasons 
that ES6 currently forbids an argument with a default value that is 
followed by one without a default value.  What would be the issue with 
relaxing this requirement?  What's different about rest arguments that 
allows them (without a default value) to follow an argument with a 
default value?

Allen or Brendan?
