Yes, unfortunately it's not that easy. I'd prefer to use Closure's IR directly in order to avoid conversion at all and manipulate it directly if necessary, but this require work. I've found at least 341 file importing ASTNode in
org.eclipse.wst.jsdt.ui so you see...

Perhaps it's possible to use class derived from Closure's Node as wrapper or implement some Adaptor in Eclipse's terminology to minimize conversion, but it depends. It's hard to say in advance.

Possible but I think it is a good idea to keep parser model and DOM model separate so that we still have options.

Also conversion from a strongly typed model to another one may actually be faster than converting from nashorn/esprima.
