argument to tell the build system to add the version of libuv
used as an input to the #:node package as an additional implicit
input, so that packages needing libuv always get the correct version.
Would it change something if we always had libuv as implicit input?  I
don't think it'd do much for closure size, but it might impact implicit
package search as proposed by my solution to the #:absent-dependencies

From a Guix perspective, I don't think it would make much difference, since libuv is always needed by node itself. Maybe it would require more grafting than would be needed otherwise?

But I think the recommendation for authors of node add-ons is to avoid libuv unless it's really needed, because it has fewer stability guarantees that other Node.js APIs.
