To be clear, at this point this is mostly inertia and lack of
volunteers to evolve the current vocabulary in the right direction. We
have about three months of outstanding work on IDL (my estimate based
on the bug reports) and it would probably took another couple of
months, including coordinating all the changes with browsers, to make
it look more like JS. However, nobody seems to have time to do this
work. If you want, it could be you ;-)
