This is a spec and reference implementation in the really early stages for an assembly language intended to replace javascript as the underlying 'machine code' of the internet, supported by Microsoft, Google, and Mozilla.

It's not much, but they have an sexp. based parser, so it should be at least as easy to build a lisp on top of it as vanilla js.

Here's an example: https://github.com/WebAssembly/spec/blob/master/ml-proto/tes...

Interesting, there's already a prototype compiler generating it: https://github.com/WebAssembly/ilwasm
