Are the plans to make null conditional (object?.thing) and null coalescent (??, ??=) operators more consistent with the behaviour of boolean null comparison? (e.g.) If the '==' operator is overloaded on specific objects to treat them as null and return a true for null comparison (even when they aren't actually).

Imho, given that both operators are essentially syntactic sugar over comparison with null, it makes sense to have them run the the overloaded logic for the == operator if one exists for the object.

C# after all is a very cohesive language ;-)

I have concerns that the rate at which C# and - the .NET platform in general - is developing faster than developers are able to keep up with. There are so many changes, many of them fundamental that developers, especially new ones have no idea how to proceed. What, if any, plans do you have to address the stability of the language and underlying platform.

Might there be a case for using TypeScript instead C# as the primary templating language for Blazor to encourage faster adoption for frontend developers?
