The SVGT 1.2 spec says:

"Script execution happens just after the load event occurs for the  
given script element."

This is opposite of the order in HTML, where the script executes  
before the corresponding element's load event occurs. It seems to me  
this reversed order will be confusing to content authors in a CDF  
enviornment.

Also, I think the HTML behavior is more useful. When you dynamically  
add a <script> element, the time you really want an event to fire is  
after it has executed, so you know the functions defined in your  
external library are now available. An event right before the script  
executes is useless.

I recommend reversing the ordering here.

Regards,
Maciej
