Thanks this is interesting, I don't know why but when I look at this I think of pattern matching, does JS support pattern matching?

It doesn't exist like that right now. However it's proposed to the tc39 and this proposal is currently in Stage 1.

Apparently there are several tries to implement it but I think they are simple patches until it's completely adopted.
