It would certainly be helpful if there was a migration doc written that
carefully explained the "best practices" way to allow your node
package/script-tag library/amd module/commonjs module to support ES6
modules as well, in the spirit of the one-liner "amd or node.js or..."
prefixes that are commonly used.
