RequireJS was selected because we needed an asynchronous loader that would run on both the client and server. We also needed the ability to define a custom loader. As with anything there are many more details, but that is the gist of the decision.

jQuery is just a starting point. It is only really being leveraged for element selection and AJAX. There is an open issue on Github to break the optimized files, Part of this would be the ability to swap out jQuery with any other library that supports an API that conforms to the same signatures.
