I understand, my concern lies in the formation of a new way to do threading in the language that will supersede the existing worker spec that has already struggled to gain mainstream acceptance even with several competing solutions available for free to make it easier to use in the real world. 

I strongly encourage exploring not adding new ways to do threading but making it easier to adopt the current threading model or even incorporate abstracted threaded execution of logic to the end user. If code could be written sequentially but intelligently controlled to scale and be executed (internally) across N threads using things like async/await for sequential control then there wouldn't even be a need for a threading spec being exposed to the end user.
