Maybe I wrote it a bit clumsy :-) I am not religious about any JS 
framework and I am also not a JS expert who can judge about the quality 
of those frameworks.
Furthermore we should not have the world record for the application 
which loads the most JS frameworks simultaneously :-)

For a while we had enough expertise to use ExtJS in the backend. This is 
currently not the case and I don't expect this to change rapidly in the 
near future. OTOH it also not wise to change JS frameworks too often. A 
lot has been invested in a framework and it takes a lot of resource to 
rewrite everything; resources we could very well use in other areas.

The end result for me:
- if jQuery goes in, others must go out
- it's not realistic to replace ExtJS in 6.0, so that has to stay
