Bert would say "Script should never go over the network". In practice, that 
turns into "90% of all scripting tasks should be done declaratively".

Declarative effects are much easier to author and debug, in general, than 
scripted effects. They are also (in the case of CSS) easier to override (it's 
not an all-or-nothing affair).
