Reopening to let the editor consider the request.

The problem is that browsers don't want to download a script that won't be run.
(Some pages use bogus type="" and don't use it as a "data block", and there
it's just wasted bandwidth and time.)

<img> can't be used for data blocks, so I don't follow.
