I'm not sure if this is the case, but if they aim to be a compatible superset of JavaScript (and from the renaming stuff Herbie has been mentioning it sounds like they do) that would break any regular JavaScript code that happens to include stuff like that in a string.

 

Now I think about it, it would be just as easy to come up with a String function that does the same thing.
