Take a look at:

That type of extensible loader could make sense in Cordova and seems like it would meet all
your requirements.

There are a few main reasons.

1. The app I am working on is an Enterprise app. We are designing the app as a Cordova shell
that re-directs to all the html content. This means that we have to dynamically load a different
cordova.js (depending on platform) following the redirect.
So we are actually unable to do anything other than dynamically load plugins once the platform
specific cordova.js is loaded

2. Some of the plugins will be used incredibly rarely. It doesn't seem necessary to always
load plugins until they are needed.

3. We are building with a single page architecture so don't want to end up with lots of script
includes in the index.html page. 
The define/require pattern feels much cleaner and better compartmentalized.
Our main page currently has 2 script includes: require.js and jqmobi.
