That's a tough one. I think ignoring document.write() in scripts that are
asynchronously fetched for <script> elements inserted while the parser is
running, rather than them blowing the document away is reasonable. I'm not sure
that exactly maps to the explanation above, though. It would need a flag on the
<script> element set when the element is added to the document, based on
whether the parser is on the stack, and then for the script execution to set a
similar flag (using a counter as described above to be reentrancy-proof) that
causes document.write() to bail.
