Will CLL lose because of economic incentive to write pure ES?

In most cases people would want to spend as less as possible on run time fees. Therefore they will try to tweak scripts really badly. At the end people will migrate to plain ES to optimize their scripts.

Do you think ES will emerge as the de facto standard to write contracts?

    The ASM comparison comes to mind. You can write Doom3 in Java, but it's never going be as efficient as speaking to the bare metal. That doesn't mean that everything is written in Assembly either, because there's also value in code maintainability, access to a larger pool of developers and speedy delivery of a project.

    In terms of the 'Understandability of Contracts', having a link to human friendly code would help, especially for contracts with a target of mass audience adoption, ie. multiple transactions. Or is there another feature of the protocol that allows for the explanation of contracts to exist elsewhere, in addition to the actual code? I suppose that could just be a third party service on top of Ethereum.

    @rverbee - you betcha. Not only a layer on top to build contracts, but even more abstracted services such as PeerCover for example. Odds are many people will be using Ethereum without even being aware of it.

    @ursium, ok so hi performance optimized compilers plus a few ES specialists hired for the most rewarding contracts. @rverbee - you betcha. People might have insurance contracts for their loss with other contracts. They might have notary services to guarantee the benevolence of contracts. Full description of risks, probably machine readable.
