I've heard that TypeScript removes the need for Babel to build JS code that runs in IE11. Is that correct? Are there any gotchas? If so how comprehensive are the documented caveats? How extensive are the polyfills? For example, Canvas Ellipse for IE11 or ResizeObserver for IE11 and Safari 13? Does TypeScript support bare module imports? Does TypeScript require (or recommend) tools such as Rollup.js and WebPack?

I see TypeScript used with webpack often. Most TypeScript loaders handle the conversion to ES5 for browser compatibility so Babel is not needed unless your application also employs ES6 and beyond (in which case you'd use a Babel loader for the JavaScript sources).
