One security measure, a boolean attribute on scripts that tells the browser always to download the script from that src and not use a cache version from another site. The script could still be cached in the manner it currently would be.

Could this also be used with CSS (twitter bootstrap) and web component imports (twitter / Facebook feeds)?

One small issue - this might push people not to concat their files (for example - a backbone site which will have backbone, underscore, jquery and maybe jquery mobile), this would be OK on browsers that support the new syntax but not so good on browsers that don't.

Kind regards,
