What is the point of the 'Symbol' type in ECMA-262-v6? Fast path implementation for object keys? What does it do under the hood - hash it with the guarantee that the underlying data is immutable?...

I'm trying to create D3 SVG Symbols, with the symbol shape set dynamically based on a category property in the data. This will be part of a custom visual in PowerBI, so I'm using Typings library.  From the examples I've seen online, the b...
