I don't think Domenic meant that the standard explicitly states that the
execution environment may choose the parse method. Rather that the context
of loading the code determines the parsing method.
I believe that the current status is that the standard describes the two
parsing methods but says nothing about when they will be applied. We do
know that <script> tags always parse as Script. Of course, modules
imported by import statements are parsed as Module. Sadly, as far as I
know, there is no standard way to import a ES2015 root module. The
discussions on modules imply that there will be an explicit "loader" import
function that will parse as Module and there has been discussion of <script
type="module"> and <module> but these proposals are moving slowly if at all.
