Well, depending on how the script is written it might contain strings 
that need translation. That's not a happy design by any metric, but it's 
probably something that needs to be handled. In other words, I don't 
think that it can be treated like any other element. It needs a class of 
its own that can convey the information that it may require some form of 
specialised translation. I'm not familiar enough with ITS to know if 
this can be expressed or not.

In fact, completely irrespective of where it occurs in the document, 
script may or may not require translation. And I can't think of a useful 
default that would work well. Note that it's very common to have scripts 
at the end of the body for performance reasons.
