Joomla JavaScript, Fix it Right?

Today, the Joomla CMS is mainly implemented using PHP where JavaScript (JS) and CSS are contributing as minor supportive technologies. Joomla mainly uses JS to improve usability by providing rich interactions and responsiveness, but is it done right? Can we improve it? What are the new technological advancements related to JS? Can we use these in Joomla? This article is an attempt to answer these questions and bring more attention to improving Joomla CMS’s JS usage.
Joomla is using MooTools as the standard JavaScript framework starting from version 1.6. This has made it to be used heavily throughout the project. In Joomla version 3.0 it introduced Twitter Bootstrap and jQuery to the core code as a front-end framework.
