Evolve Javascript to follow TypeScript language specs

When I stumbled across TypeScript, I am quite convinced that JavaScript should try to follow TypeScript language specifications as the future standard. Is there any way to drive this into the JavaScript community? I believe most JavaScript developers know that JavaScript typing is a bit too loose.

You may have this the wrong way around - as many of the features implemented in TypeScript are already in the ECMAScript 6 "Harmony" standards.

TypeScript gives you early access, plus some additional features that may well find their way into the official ECMAScript standard, but most of the features are already proposed.
