Hello all,

Probably won’t be able to make the call, so leaving feedback here (and on GH):

#3 eager execution and #6 are sort of related. Both touch on opening up a bunch of math primitives to the web which is great, but also hard. While I personally would love to see this happen, scoping the operations and tradeoffs is really hard; and improvements on the syntactic infrastructure (since you definitely want certain operations to be infix for ergonomic reasons) needs to be delivered from another SDO. (TC39, in particular)

This will take a lot of coordination, so I think clearly splitting the scope between “what we can do now” and “what we eventually want to do” to have everyone aligned on what the group is planning to deliver.
