We’ll have to check what maintainers think, but I’ve come to think that
we could include it in Guix proper, while of course properly documenting
its shortcomings.

We would probably not include packages made with it in Guix proper, but
it can still be useful to users who want a way to manage free JS code
with Guix.  And on top of that, it already exists.  :-)
