But you don't have them now, with AMD, etc. So you'll have to wait no
matter what (ES6, ES7). There's no "rewrite twice" if you assume AMD
non-lexically-nested modules. Only by up'ing the ante independent of
what you do today, do you get that "twice" -- and that is not a problem
of ES6 _per se_.
So yes, you want lexical modules. There ought to be a strawman for them
soon. At that point, prototyping, especially by trans-compiler writers,
will be fair game.
