So what is your proposal then? Just standardize the node module resolution algorithm, since that is what transpilers are doing?

It is not working outside of transpilers, which implement nonstandard resolution algorithms. The same transpilers implement JSX, but I don't think we'd take that as a reason to say that JSX is "working" and now let's start discussing how to standardize a reflective JSX layer.
