I am completely unconvinced by this argument. Who's shipping un-minified, un-transpiled, un-bundled ES6? And even if you were, TypeScript is just a superset of ES6, to the point where there's even a babel plugin to simply strip the types leaving you with regular ES6 JavaScript. I don't believe that the addition of TypeScript would add any debugging burden to an existing ES6 project.

It's not like we're compiling Haskell to JavaScript, I've never had trouble debugging because of differences between TypeScript and my build output. I honestly don't even think about it.
