[Bug 8912] Why can't defer be used on inline scripts? If the script execution is slow (which can include loading of preceeding style sheets), the browser will have to wait until it can continue parsing and start downloading subsequent external resources.

Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: Browsers already parse ahead of inline <script>s optimistically, so
it doesn't stop that. As Henri says, this was considered (in fact, it was even
specced for a while) and ended up being removed because of some really strange
interactions between <script>, the parser, document.write(), and innerHTML.
