I think this is not the right solution.  We could end up with
a forest of -type attributes like style-type, script-type, maybe

Why can't a single declaration at the top of the document declare
the style language being used?  Have I missed a proposal to allow
users to specify the style content per element?  That would be a
very bad thing from a browser maker's point of view.
