I don't see a problem here.  CSS is only controlling the display of the
document.  The script element should have 'display: none' and should be
handled by some other system of the application processing the
document.

XSLT, on the other hand, actually transforms the whole document.  Or
does it?  Can other things in the original document be processed after
an XSLT transformation?
