If you're using ES6, you're already likely doing a compilation step anyway. So I'm not too sure there's much loss.

True, I've been using Babel for ES6 when not working on chrome extensions or sites limited to early adopters which I look forward to not having to depend on. For Node you don't need Babel to use ES6 besides support for import instead of require.

I still find having to use Babel annoying.
