Javascript virtual machine as a standard

Was watching this video by Zed Shaw few months ago.

Well, all but one thoughts are totally forgotten.

But the one lingering is as follows:
The web browsers should be language(read Javascript) independent. They should support a common standardized bytecode engine to run things in them.
Let people choose their favorite languages to code and should not be forced to use Javascript. Those languages should generate a standardized bytecode.
People are anyway moving towards this goal with things like Coffeescript, Fay, Roy, Elm etc. But things could definitely improve beyond this code translation activities.

Thats it!
