    Maybe they should do this for .NET Core instead.
    I use less and less .NET Framework, only for maintaining legacy code bases. For new stuff, I use .NET Core which is much nicer.

      I had thought that WebAssembly has no support for languages with GCs though, thus reserving WebAssembly exclusively to C/C++/Rust?

        You can turn off GC in most GC languages.

          Java/C#/python/etc were written in C/C++... many languages that have garbage collection were created using C/C++. It just means they need to port the GC into webassembly.

            It does, but you need to BYOGC, Bring Your Own Garbage Collector.

            There is ongoing work in figuring out how to expose the already very good GCs so that they are usable for a wide range of languages, but that work is not done yet.
