Amen to that!
For one thing, it simplifies application deployment, because you can
bundle your app in one directory and everything just works with
require(). At the moment, there's a practice of (a) make a library,
then give a call point (e.g LuaDoc) or (b) put everything into one
file (e.g markdown)
It does make sense to put '.' at the end.
