I know. My 'delay' suggestion was before the specs was split in two
i.e It was only 'lazyload' then.  And for that, I assume the reason for
the reverse semantics is just a simple mishap that occurred then.
I did not mean that 'delay' should used here.

Agreed. But if 'lazyload' matches its proper semantics,
I don't have an issue with 'postpone' in itself. 'priority'? maybe..
The 'post' in postpone actually helps the post-'defer' notion for scripts.
