Do you prefer the lowercase 'd' instead of the uppercase 'D'? I think most acronyms in JS are uppercased (e.g. JSON), so the latter seems more aligned with convention.

And what is required to get such a proposal through? I really think using 'Path' as a new global constructor at this point is a bad idea, and could cause quite a bit of trouble with apps out there.
