Are not event handler attributes (onxxxx) effectively script elements 
and wouldn't this therefore make these almost unusable?

Also, one can assign new attributes to EcmaScript objects, including
attributes which are methods.  Wouldn't this mean that you would have
to maintain parallel DOMs so that each scripting environment couldn't
see the attributes maintained by the others on the DOM elements?
