This brings up an interesting point about the modules, that being lazy
loading. One appealing reason to use a module loader instead of just
concatenating the scripts or using multiple script tags is that you can do
feature detection and load polyfills for things you need instead of just
forcing the client to download all the polyfills, regardless of whether
they need them or not. Does the modules proposal attempt to solve this in
any way?
