--- Comment #6 from T.J. Crowder <tj@crowdersoftware.com> 2011-08-05 12:32:31 UTC ---
The editor's response closing the bug addressed issues with the original
proposal that were effectively identical to the issues I raised, and solved, in
Comment #1 (and several days earlier on the mailing list, but my comments
weren't copied over when the bug was logged).

The idea behind the original suggestion is sound (provide an explicit means of
giving permission to browsers to use bundled libraries), but the mechanics were
completely off-base.

Since the editor's response seems not to be informed by Comment #1, I'm
reopening.

Addressing the editor's response:

> The proposed change fails to Degrade Gracefully in existing
> browsers.

With the changes from Comment #1, it would work on IE 5.5 if you could find a
copy. :-)

> Also, it would add another element that runs scripts. Script execution
> is already hard enough that I think we shouldn't make changes that'd
> require implementors to give more elements the script execution (and
> presumbably parser blocking) nature.

With the changes from Comment #1, the `script` element is enhanced rather than
adding a `library` element, solving this issue.
