It has other advantages: Python-like for those who care; Y can be a long
braced list or pattern, which goes better at the end.
But too late, and import was reserved in ES1 and ur-JS, but not in IE
JScript (which did not follow ES1's list of future reserved words,
reserving only class enum extends super, IIRC). Still, some warding-off
effect from the '90s when people couldn't use `import` as an identifier.
