FYI, I'm currently working an a dependency system update to HTML which has 
the goals of:

 - merging HTML import dependency management and ES6 module dependency 
   management infrastructure
 - defining preloading mechanisms for most HTML loading contexts
 - defining a dependency system for HTML loading contexts, especially
   style sheets, images, HTML imports, modules, and scripts
 - hooking most HTML loading contexts into the new Fetch API

Assuming this works out as intended, it would completely subsume the 
resource hints proposal. My main blocker right now is the part where it 
gets integrated into the ES6 module system; it's requiring some very 
careful reading of the ES6 spec. I'm still in the middle of this. You can 
see my current results here:
