It's worth noting that ES6 actually does not run without compilation on every browser (and will not for a while) since it introduces breaking new syntax instead of stuff that could be polyfilled. For all intends and purposes it's a new language (it's like C++ to C). So maybe any other superset of JS would have the same chances.

Maybe, but I doubt it. ES6 is almost certain to get implemented in browsers. Other languages won't have that crucial advantage.
