Why? Seems like one extra step. I am trying to think of a reason, maybe
just being numb.

TS compiler does not minify or optimize like GC, which is what you want
right?

I know I read a GIT issue about this and the TS devs said there are tools
that do this already and unless that had a real reason to spend their time
on it, it wouldn't happen.

They did say they were thinking about adding closure compiler extern
emitter to it.

As far as subclassing, it handles it fine, it's properties that they don't
support right now. As I said previously, they say call Java like mutator
methods. So if you wrote an emitter, all properties would be converted to
"setFoo(), getFoo()" but that could be a conflict as some AS code could
actually contain those methods.
