I'm not sure if that's relevant. E4X is not XML, and it's not parsed. It's
really just text, and in fact needs to be escaped in a CDATA section if part
of an SVG document. Currently, I don't think that XML child nodes are
allowed in a script element, either in the text or in the schema. 

A related question is whether metadata elements such as <title> and <desc>
should be allowed as child elements. If so, what context would they be
parsed in, SVG or the script language? I think this issue opens up a can of
worms that might need deeper thought, and may be more appropriate for SVG
