That would be running any newly-added <script>, not running script in 
general, right?  And pending has a somewhat nontrivial definition as 
well... (a stylesheet added via parsing a <link> or <style> element that 
was in the currently selected stylesheet set at the point when it was 
added to the DOM and is either not done loading or has an @import'ed 
descendant that is not done loading).

I'd really appreciate a pointer to the relevant spec section.
