Oh wait. "data block" needs the data embedded inline. Having it external with
src="" won't work since the script isn't fetched if type is not supported.
IIRC, browsers converged on not fetching such scripts for perf reasons.
However, I guess a new attribute could be minted to explicitly enable fetching
external (but same-origin) data blocks and making them available to scripts for
reading, as an alternative to XHR.

Why is XHR not good enough?
