Are there features in Lua that could be removed to create a simpler language?

Of course 'simpler' needs to be defined.

Simpler for users?
Simpler for implementors?

Often these are conflicting goals.

I, for instance, never use co-routines ... and I know they add a bunch
of complexity both from implementation and user point of view.

Another feature I never use is inheritance - at most I use simple class objects.
