Jonas, I beg to slightly differ on the point below.
I think of npm or yarn/yarnpkg as the equivalent for the nodejs ecosystem of python virtualenv. There are workflows where you'd want to maintain a certain configuration of a webapp, phonegap app or website using a local set of modules / pinned versions. Getting npm / yarn into Debian is a high priority task to expand the Debian user base. If we have those, from there on all the web developers of the world can run npm without the -g option and maintain their projects as they like, possibly using a mixture of globally installed binaries and locally installed modules.
