this is what happens today with external CDN scripts and/or AMD like
solutions regardless ... if these are not bundled all together, isn't it?

behavior but hard to make it fully able to ignore network requests.

However, this is not usually the main concern for new/recent proposals so I
wonder why it is in such specific case?
