Like rats deserting a sinking ship ...

This is not a definitive requirement; I've created this issue to promote discussion.

It's quite likely that a move like this could be accomplished quite smoothly for users who
are meerly consumers of JavaScript components; authors of JavaScript components would have
to make some changes.

Possibly we should code the jQuery stack from the get-go to NOT use the $() method, but instead
use j$(). That extra character to type could make all the difference is allowing a smooth
upgrade, where jQuery becomes the default, but prototype/scriptaculous can still be used.

Possibly a new annotation, @PrototypeSupport for components to ensure that the Prototype libraries
are available for compatibility?
