Hmmm... perhaps not:
With AIR and Silverlight going beyond JS1.5, the risk could be larger
than you think. However, for the foreseeable future 99% of the world
will think of JS as JS1.5 / ES3. You don't run on IE otherwise.

I know. However Cosmin isn't (I think). Personally, I'm looking for a
way to make it easy for developers to manage the state space of
applications and transitions therein, including a way to manage
caches in the entire stack, from database to client.

Lua and/or JS are only tangentially interesting at the moment, as a
potential way to handle macro-transactions.
