That is exactly my argument. (better expressed than I’ve managed so far ;-) )

If it can be implemented by the average javascript developer in 10 lines or can be neatly put into a simple library we shouldn’t
put it in the browser.

Every thing we add at this stage (and I’ve been saying this for 9 months) delays the standard, and complicates testing. 
You have to be _very_ sure your favourite feature is worth the delay.
