Hello webkit-dev,

For the last couple of years myself some other Chrome folks have been working 
on the import maps proposal. This allows controlling the behavior of JavaScript 
import statements and import() expressions, in particular by allowing the page 
to customize the translation of the module specifiers used there into URLs. 
Developer reception of the feature has been very positive, with continual 
prompting for when it'll be widely available in more browsers, and a plethora 
of community-created tools and polyfills.

Chrome is working toward shipping this in an imminent release, and we'd love 
any thoughts or contributions from the WebKit community.

* Explainer: https://github.com/WICG/import-maps/blob/master/README.md

* Spec (would eventually merge into HTML upon multi-implementer interest): 

* Test suite: 
https://github.com/web-platform-tests/wpt/tree/master/import-maps/ (although 
getting rearranged a good bit in 
https://github.com/web-platform-tests/wpt/pull/26239 )

* Mozilla standards position discussion, with lots of web developers 
contributing: https://github.com/mozilla/standards-positions/issues/146

* Some gathered evidence of developer interest: 

Thanks for your time!
