Not sending this to dev.platform, seems way off-topic.

You are not familiar with the constant TPAC-refrain of how we need to
modularize HTML? Jeff for one has been saying this a lot and then
everyone claps, goes home, and does nothing about it.

As far as actual modularization of HTML goes, I'd claim
XMLHttpRequest, Fetch, URL, Encoding, DOM, etc. are all examples of
that. Although DOM and XMLHttpRequest have a two-way dependency with
HTML, effectively making them just another page that happens to be
maintained by someone else.
