Surely Paul meant for such a <script> and <style> element to be in their 
own namespace, e.g. <xml:script> or <css:style> or whatever…? They’re in 
a different namespace, and in a different namespace the meaning can be 
different. Whether in natural language a single word can have multiple 
meanings seems quite irrelevant to me (in other natural languages its 
name means nothing at all, that doesn’t seem to be a problem either), as 
long as it’s not *entirely* unintuitive.
