I've written tests that use <script> but intentionally don't use the "dom" flag. These were manual tests where the script reduced the amount of manual work required to execute the test, but was optional and the test was still valid if scripts were not supported.

Then again, this is sufficiently corner case that I wouldn't object to losing this bit of expressivity, even if I would miss it.
