Nesting has the advantage of a fall-back. Like with object if there is 
anything you can't or don't want to do, you just ignore that element. It 
would be extremely easy to make a non-scripting user agent. 

Linking, while seemingly giving more freedom, means that a noscript could 
blip out of existence depending of the state of scripts that may not even 
have run yet. Furthermore any XHTML 1.0 user would choke on the XHTML 2.0 
logic.
