That's my point; loaders are using the lock implicitly so that's why we don't need to worry about the global import lock just for path hooks. It seems like you are suggesting using the global import lock purely for compatibility, and what I am saying is that loaders don't care so there is no compatibility to care about. I say only use the global import lock for serializing creation.
