There was discussion about using `this` for exposing metadata about the module. For example (pure speculation):

this.address; // location of the current module; // name of the current module
this.metadata; // object with metadata generated during the loading lifecycle
this.loader // maybe? reference to the loader that actually loaded this module

I haven’t seen any mention of `import * as foo` in the meeting notes, so I’m assuming that the ES6 module syntax is basically done. Right? Except for the “import-into-namespace syntax” [1], of course. As an aside, I’m really glad that `this` won’t be used here (which would have resulted in yet another thing one has to learn about `this`).
