            Bug ID: 161464
           Summary: const keyword should be allowed in strict mode
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: WebKit
           Version: Safari 9
          Hardware: Unspecified
                OS: Unspecified
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: JavaScriptCore
          Assignee: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
          Reporter: jamie.pate at gmail.com

The 'const' keyword has 'basic support' from all major browsers according to http://kangax.github.io/compat-table/es6/

const foo = 123;
return (foo === 123);

Unfortunately, webkit throw an error if the `const` keyword is used in a strict context (via 'use strict'; ).

Steps to Reproduce:
<!DOCTYPE html>
<body style="white-space: pre-wrap">
<script> window.onerror = function(e) { alert(e);console.log.apply(console, arguments) }; </script>
/* jshint globalstrict: true */
/* jshint esnext: true */
'use strict';

function x() {
    const a = 1;
    return a === 1;
var result = 'failure';

try {
    result = x() ? 'success' : 'failure';
} catch (ex) { }

Actual Results: "SyntaxError: Unexpected keyword 'const', Const declarations are not supported in strict mode."

Expected Results: "success" (script executed normally)

Platforms: OSX Safari 9.1.2, iOS webkit 602.1, Phantomjs 2.1.1
