馃檵 Feature request

Most of the time lately I don't need babel, I just ship ES6 code (or let TypeScript do it)

Instead of requiring config in a separate file (be it browserlist or package.json) it'd be great to just disable the transpilation. This would let me use parcel from the command line without having to create a project and config

parcel build index.js --no-babel-preset-env

I think babel is currently used for more than preset-env so it wouldn't make sense to add a --no-babel flag.

馃 Expected Behavior

@babel/preset-env is not added to babel's config when the --no-babel-preset-env flag is added.

馃槸 Current Behavior

let plugins = presetEnv.default(
{assertVersion: () => true},
modules: false,
useBuiltIns: useBuiltIns ? 'entry' : false,
shippedProposals: true
