Correct. The module unit may have a “global module fragment” which is never imported itself.

I think having a clear terminology is a starting point. But we'll

definitely need to get into more details than that, including for

things like "when you distribute a library, how do you tell what are

the "importable" headers you ship.

Also, we don't import module units - we never do.

I don't think I understand what you mean. Would you mind clarifying?

I'm pretty sure he wants to say that you import the BMI rather than the module unit as the former is a compilation artefact of the latter.
