In the very long run, could OS-specific CFI enforcement toolchains and runtimes merge into a single standard, usable on the web?

Maybe, but that is beyond my prediction horizon. Either OS vendors or browser vendors (if there's a difference) would have to standardize a butt-load of APIs.

Since the '60s, researchers have dreamed of universal object files (ANDF, e.g.). It would be too funny if far-future JS merges into this single standard too!

("too funny" in my experience means this will definitely happen...)
