Which is not a step forward as one cannot define multiple modules in one file or a module across multiple files or in dynamically loaded chunks... or any combination of the above.

I don't see what prevents you from using require("foo.bar") and
require("foo.baz") for this purpose. And 5.2 will have a new package.*
function that lets you locate the path to a named module, which is
basically require() without actually reading in the file. So you could
easily create multi-file modules using this.
