Also, E4X was implemented in Mozilla Firefox and then, after a while, removed from the implementation. I don't know whether there was any conflict with regular ECMAScript, or if it was a code size/download time issue (odd, in this day and age) or whether, because other browsers didn't implement it, no-one was using it.
