Just checking the javascript libraries required for the cart, they are a bit on the heavy side maybe.
They don’t appear to be minified, that would be a good idea for anyone planning to deploy the cart to production.
Here is a link to one of the best around:
Dean Edwards packer for js
You’ll knock quite a bit off the file size, it get’s a little harder to tweak the js there after though.

I’m wondering if there is any thoughts on converting the javascript functions to jquery there library and files are some of the lightest scripts around.
Is there any documentation of the javascript functions being used now, I noticed the product image zoom that’s obviously js, and a great feature.
Any other js features anyone knows about, is there documentation?
Would the cart function if js were off or malfunctioning?
Just some Q’s thanks.

Packer seems to work well, but if possible just enable mod_deflate in Apache. That way all text output is compressed.
