Because scripting is undesirable because it is too powerful, and 
therefore risks making the page machine processable for any purpose
other than rendering as the author intended, and is a pre-requesite for
exploiting many browser vulnerabilities.  The general policy is that
if something is wanted and desirable, it should be doable declaritively.
