Easing migration would be more of concern if my answer to #2 were  
yes. There are workarounds that I think would be more appropriate  
such as separate sitemaps for migrating to JavaFlow.

No. While I plan on using Javaflow going forward, JSFlow makes flow  
available to Javascript programers (web masters).

Don't know yet. What is the use case?

I just think its prudent to wait until there is a real need before we  
add a feature that may introduce complexities.
