Script was created by Netscape for HTML a long time ago, and hasn't
changed until now because a change would break backwards compatibility.

I was under the impression that the single XML element in XML events was
to tie script segments to XML elements.  I only suggested behavior as a
general name for embedded behavioral sections if nothing else exists.
Obviously, if that's taken care of in XML Events, an extra tag is not
necessary; and in that case, the suggestion becomes having a library for
embedded presentation similar to how XML Events allows for embedded
