I'm a +1 on moving to RequireJS, particularly as a goal for Dojo 2.0.
I haven't looked over the CommonJS formats well enough to comment on
substantially but I think I'm with Eugene in that I'm not sure it
makes sense for Dojo itself--but having that as a plug-in (as
hopefully DojoX finally becomes by 2.0) sounds great to me as well.
