In the course of creating many HTML pages I stumbled several times over the
fact that linkage to external script files is different from linkage to any
other external resource.

while all other resources make use of the empty <link> element, the <script>
element requires a separate, non-empty pair of tags to link to an external
script file.

Linking to external style sheets has the same semantics as linking to external
script files (libraries), but this is currently not reflected by the peculiar
use of the <script> tag.

I suggest to homogenize linkage of external files by endorsing an additional
value for the "rel" attribute of the <link> element: "script".
