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, https://github.com/walmartlabs/lazojs/issues/38. 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.
