With the state of javascript at the moment you would certainly be using library code that's less than two years old to build core parts of your app. The line between language and library can get pretty blurry, particularly when we're talking about a language that compiles to JS.

To be fair, there's a difference between a library and a language here. Replacing or taking on the maintenance for a library is a much more feasible option for many than jumping to a new language or taking on the maintenance for an entire language (as it's not just the compiler, it's also custom tooling, debugging, plus Dart really needs its own libraries, etc.)
