Of course, head.js and control.js do the same thing.
What needs to be seen here is that those are workarounds, that users were
forced to create because they want this behaviour from the browser.

A webpage should not be required to use complex script-loading addons like
head/control/Lab-js. Instead, the default should be to optimistically defer as
much as possible and fix the problems when they occur.

These loaders show that users do care about the initial paint latency.
So why not make the latency universally-low and only restrict execution order
for people that really require it ?
