There have been some variations of "javascript-mode", like there has
been for "css-mode".

I think the main difficulty might be that some people might be loading
an old version of it. That is a real problem that has caused a lot of
trouble that I have seen for example in mumamo. Better error/warning
messages would be useful for taking care of this (maybe something
along the lines that Juri suggested, collecting messages and showing
the more important of them after a command has finished / Emacs has

Customiizations too, of course, but I hope those will be taken care of
by the javascript/espresso maintainers. (They will probably take care
of the needs people have seen and redirect them to useful Emacs
functions or implement them.)
