Comment (by joshuanan):

 I hope this will get more attention soon. The issue @mcsf mentioned is
 really a pain for JS conditional logic. Consider that the following code
 will throw an error ("Uncaught SyntaxError: '#' not followed by
 identifier") when entered into a Gutenberg HTML block directly or as the
 output of a short code entered in Gutenberg, because & is converted to an
 HTML entity.


 x = 5;
 y = 10;
 z = 10

 if (x < y) {

   console.log("X is Greater than Y.");
 else if (x !== y && x !== z) {

   console.log("X is Less than Y, But Unique.");
