Also, no "JS will be replaced" threat, no proprietary native VM in IE-prototype to advantage it over other browsers running TypeScript compiled to JS.

But I agree it is another case of two-faced behavior, not in the way you suggest. The IE blog post against Dart rejects a "clean break" and TypeScript builds on ES6. That's consistent.

What is not consistent is how similar parts (but not all) of TypeScript are to ES4, which MS opposed vigorously. Time has passed and ES4 had its own problems, so bygones.
