A "module" is a piece of code that can be instantiated in multiple
isolated contexts. The ability to import a module provides no
authority. A module may be _implemented_ in pure ES or as "native"
code, but its API must still be the standard module API.

A "service" is an ES object that exposes some arbitrary API. The
ability to reach a service typically provides authority. A service may
(of course...) be _implemented_ in pure ES or as "native" code.
