Actually, it has been rumored that Brendan Eich, JavaScript's creator, modeled it heavily after Lisp, so you're not too far off in thinking of it as a functional language.

These are all really great ideas that I will definitely keep in mind as I'm putting together my proposal for Pro JS 2nd Ed. The goal is, afterall, to beat O'Reilly. :)
