The spec whitelists the points at which document.write works by talking about
saving the current insertion point.  It's the same reason document.write
doesn't work for other synchronous script execution during parsing.

To be clear, I meant that we should study various corpuses of web content to
see what's workable from a compatibility standpoint.  It should be easy to
assess the compat impact of this change using grep.
