Your comment on [OBJECTS_OR_SCRIPT] ...:


This Best Practice should require that content not rely on scripting,  
unless the delivery context is known to support them. Some mobile browsers
 
allow the user to turn off javascript (handy where you are trying to save 

battery).

It should also lean away from using script unless necessary - it is one of
 
the more battery-intensive ways to do most things.

It should also cross-reference requirements on page size, and a best  
practice on page size vs latency (see Opera's comment on "missing points")

cheers

Chaals


Working Group Resolution:
We have updated the document to clarify that content should not rely on
scripting, and avoid using scripting as much as possible due to battery
considerations.
