XML Events 2 Scripting Module in XHTML 2

While editing XHTML 2 tonight, attempting to make all of the external 
references hang together, I noticed something that I don't know the 
solution for:

If we are integrating XML Scripting into the XHTML namespace (as we have 
planned to do) then the script element will bring with it the attributes 
"encoding", "implements", "src", and "type".  Naturally, we also want 
the "script" element to take the Common attributes, which perforce 
include the Metainformation attributes (RDFa), the embedding attributes 
from XHTML 2, etc...  Now @src and @encoding from the Embedding module 
are probably consistent with what we meant for the script element.   So 
that's fine.  I think.  Correct me if I am wrong.

@implements is a new thing, and there is no conflict.

@type...   XML Events 2 goes to great pains to explain what @type 
means.... and I think it is exactly what is meant by @srctype in XHTML 
2.  So... I am not sure what to do here.  We can change @type to 
@srctype in XML Events 2.  We can bring in @type on the script element, 
also bring in @src, and just have the script element reference the 
Common attributes collection (use a subset that makes sense, but does 
not include the embedding attributes).... or maybe something else. 

Help?
