Re: proposal of function return with object destructor
You did start in the right spot! Search esdiscuss.com for "pick notation", though - it's pretty much the same thing, but an expression instead.
(TL;DR: it was rejected as overly specific, since it's maybe saving a couple lines of code, and it's also pretty easy to write a utility function if you find yourself doing this a lot. Also, Lodash and similar do have utility methods for this kind of thing.)
I've had similar instances of using deconstruction as an annoying man-in-the-middle step; perhaps what is needed is a deconstruction operator, since assignment wouldn't work in, say a concise arrow function because it's not an expression:
// works, but is verbose (repeats declaration of deconstructed variables)
