Absolutely!  hence why I think script inserted in this shouldn't be 
specified, as you say the current wording leaves opent the ability to add 
script nodes whilst the document is loading via script, and that also needs 
to be specified or outlawed, I strongly believe outlawed, since specifying 
it is way too hard.

Interesting, that would mean that appendChild and document.write behave 
differently -  I should really look into it myself, but this sort of stuff 
is best avoided due to inconsistencies - you also I think need to define 
behaviour to get around things like 
http://jibbering.com/2004/10/loopcrash.html (will crash recent mozillas) 
entering infinite loops.

No, that's a "proposed errata", it's not an errata, at least it admits to 
not being maintained which is an advantage over other working groups.

No, does in 5.5, not in 6 after checking.

Cheers,
