Hi Maciej. You are absolutely right! That's why it is so good coupled with TypeScript which can prevent mutating a freezed object by refusing to transpile the file.

Still I see readonly as a tool for the job. Object.freeze is fully run-time thing and it is decoupled from type definition. Declaration of readonly is included into type definition, so it is explicit. I don't think run-time block is needed here.
