The async attribute is basically a promise not to call  
document.write() *and* a promise to be prepared to run at a less  
predictable moment. Has having a promise not to call document.write()  
but still expecting synchronous execution been considered?

(This is simply a question at this point. It shouldn't be read as a  
request for a spec feature.)
