Hey @goodmind! We really appreciate you taking the time to report an issue. The collaborators
on this project attempt to help as many people as possible, but we're a limited number of volunteers,
so it's possible this won't be addressed swiftly.

If you need any help, or just have general Babel or JavaScript questions, we have a vibrant Slack
that typically always has someone willing to help. You can sign-up here
for an invite.

I think that this should be implemented in @babel/cli (e.g. babel --parse foo.js). @babel/pareser doesn't know about the config resolution logic, and implementing it there would led to a big size increase for almost no benefit.
