That’s not what I was really aiming at :)

The original concern was “to get ‘module’ : 1. It's a context-sensitive 
keyword, and code that's using it needs to 

be updated when migrated to a module. “

I was just pointing out that ‘import’ is already a context-sensitive keyword 
(as are a bunch of others, like super. Is super a keyword BTW?)

Ah but you can do:

export function meta(key) {

return import.meta[key]:

}

I don’t think you can have a

function x() {

   import {x} from ‘module’;

}

At global scope in a script body, in a browser context, it's an error,

as you presumably know, because `document` is already declared.

Yes. That's what I said.

The issue with it being an identifier isn't shadowing. It's that then

it's a binding with a value, and that value can be passed around,

which I suspect isn't okay.

For clarity: To get `module`, either:

1. It's a context-sensitive keyword, and code that's using it needs to

be updated when migrated to a module.

2. It's an identifier, which means its value can be passed around.

All I've said, again, is: I *suspect* that having it be an identifier

is a non-starter. But perhaps you can get support for a

context-sensitive keyword, if people feel it's worth the complexity

for mildly-improved semantics.
