I'm probably walking on thin ice here, but I honestly think official typescript support would detract from the product. It would needlessly complicate things with little benefit and then you would have to compile before your compile. They would also then have to provide support for a third party language. It is much better driven as a community project for people who absolutely must use Typescript.
