Since when did non-determinism enter the stage? Optional modules? That's waay different than what I'm talking about

— Okay

— Yes, that still makes it a dependency

— What's your point?

— It can reduce both size and dependency

— For the sake of this discussion, vulnerability == dependency

— In an hour I can write up a comprehensive example

— Module systems are imho overkill for most web sites. Oh and webapps that take minutes to load are shit anyways, regardless of whether they use a module system or not. Imo module systems are just convenient, not more and not less

— I'm not saying it will be less code

— I'm just saying that NOT using a module system (until imports are finalized) in browsers is a vulnerability

— For instance:

var i = 4;


var arr = [];
arr.length = i;

i is a dependency of script2.js
