I don't know all the factors involved, but I'll just say that (require 
net/cgi) is optimally simple, memorable and satisfying for a newcomer. 
(require planet/...) would have the same quality, but (require (planet 
planet/...)) would not. It's neither the old explicit syntax nor the new 
minimal one, but another variant to remember, and also brings up "why do 
I have to write planet twice ?"
