good question. I haven't tested your particular case yet, but I'd recommend having both module and main if your app is build against esm and before: The problem here is that it depends on which code babel runs on. If you're running a full build, then dependencies are baked (and minified etc) into the different chunks for your app. If you're just running in development, it might pull in modules, and you can run into problems for example when an es6-class (which is native to the browser) is extended like a non-native class (because js didn't always have classes). Somewhere I read a statement from the CRA team saying that they try to create builds for the largest common denominator of configurations (Browser/OS) out there - so that means ES6 modules and classes, because both are pretty standard now
