I don't know :)

Is there anything in the portal samples I can try this on?

With my changes, forms processed through the built-in cforms xslt now  
only load 2 files via script tags :

	<script type="text/javascript" src="{$resources-uri}/ajax/dojo/ 
dojo.js" > </script>
	<script type="text/javascript" src="{$resources-uri}/ajax/js/ 
cocoon.js" > </script>

The first one gets dojo bootstrapped, the second plugs in Cocoon's  
namespace to the script loader, so we keep our code separate.

Then the other libs are 'required' as appropriate. eg. these are  
always used (these samples are using the 'old' names) :

	<script type="text/javascript">
	<xsl:template match="fi:form-template|fi:form-generated">
		. . .
		<xsl:if test="@ajax = 'true'">
			<script script="text/javascript">
			    cocoon.forms.ajax = true;
		. . .

If the same dojo.require is called several times, only the first one  
results in a file actually loading.
