I totally agree with the idea that all Frameworks (Polyfils) should themselves eventually become extinct and no longer needed. The idea of jQuery was always to superceded by Javascript itself and I’d like to see AMP go the same way one day.

jQuery is the classic example of this. There’s very little reason to use jQuery these days because you can accomplish so much with browser-native JavaScript. But the reason why you can accomplish so much without jQuery is because of jQuery. I don’t think we would have querySelector without jQuery. The library proved the need for the feature. The same is true for a whole load of DOM scripting features.
