This is completely off target IMO. We want to walk away from bundling, it is tedious, it is ugly, it slows down development, it makes debugging a pain, it makes bucketing almost impossible, it is just a pain in general. Instead, we want to rely on bundling at the lowest level (at the browser level), and that's what SPDY/HTTP2.0 brings to the table, and now that Apple is onboard, I don't see why we should consider bundling a relevant use-case.
