Sure it runs, but I don’t think that it’s acceptable to ship code that relies on ASI. That’s like relying on code that exclusively runs based on exceptions (like code that runs in a catch block). In any case, if you’re not minifying your code, then you have bigger problems to concern yourself with :)
