Ecmascript 7 or Ecmascript 8 should not be called "JavaScript", my proposal:

- remove "Script"

- replace "Java" with more accurate term (how about Harmony ?)

Well, ECMAScript isn't called JavaScript, it's called ECMAScript. So there you go!

ECMAScript doesn't flow as well as JavaScript though.

How do you pronounce it, anyways? E-C-M-AScript? Ec-maScript? EczemaScript?
