+1 on simplicity vs perfection.

IMO, If you take on full AS to JS cross-compilation, it is a very difficult
task full of these edge cases.  But I want to (at least at first) only
cross-compile a subset of AS to JS.  I am hopeful there is a subset that is
straight forward to cross-compile that is sufficient enough for folks to
build enterprise class apps.  We would add warnings/errors to the compiler
to catch the edge cases like untyped or (* typed) optional params.

I think I recall that for..in iteration of classes is also an issue.  Seems
like we could live without that or require that you provide a filter
function for the cases where you need it.
