Maybe I'm misunderstanding the ES6 loader spec. What's the Load Record 
[[Dependencies]] list?

(If ES6 isn't maintaining the dependency tree, then this would make my 
life a lot easier, since I could maintain all the dependency information 
outside of the Web's default Loader, without having to worry about 
browsers having to implement duplicate logic. So if I have indeed 
misinterpreted the spec to that extent, that would be very good to know!)
