Greetings, at the Venice f2f we discussed adding @implements to the script 
element but the discussion trailed off before we confirmed exactly what 
the editors should add [1]. 

Since I am trying to do the edit I would like to confirm what should be 
added.

The script element will support an additional attribute: "implements"

implements attribute is defined as follows:
the implements attributes specifies that the script identified by the @src 
provides an implementation of the specified namespace. The script should 
only be loaded and used if the user agent does not have an implementation 
of the specified namespace.

example: 
  <script src="xmlEvents2.js" type="...." implements="
http://www.w3.org/2001/xml-events" />

Question 1: is this what the participants thought was agreed?
Question 2: if it was, then is a namespace not too coarse a unit? Should 
we identify features within a namespace, perhaps a feature might be 
equivalent to an XHTML module.
Question 3: how, if it all, does this relate to the DOM hasFeature method?
