Considering the passion with which they would have contributed to Moment, it certainly is admirable to see them show responsibility.
Having said that, Moment tried to fill a gap caused by a limitation in the language. Ideally, the language should have addressed it. It is high time the language addresses it natively.
Moment.js played its part in highlighting the problem and thus contributed to the language development. Put differently, such libraries which should be ideally native functionality will cease to exist in the long run.
