Yeah, if desktop system really are to make an impact on mobile consumer devices all VM-based programms need to get purged or rewritten. Having slow (starting) VMs isn't going to cut it anymore. User experience is more important than developer experience. Apple knows that.
Ideally JS should be the only allowed VM because ideally it is used in the browser already. I know that is not how things work in say Gnome3 atm, but it is how things should end up.
