The HTML parser should continue tree building inside an import even if blocked
on an external resource.

As a result document.write() should also throw when the currentScript is inside
an import since the location of the write is arbitrary.

The result of this is that given:

<link rel="import" href="1.html">
<script src="slow.js"></script>
<link rel="import" href="2.html">
<link rel="import" href="3.html">

While slow.js is being downloaded the entire import tree (1.html, 2.html and
3.html) can be processed and constructed into DOM trees. When it finishes
loading the scripts that were queued while tree building these nested imports
and the top level import with the console.log should be executed in order. This
is conceptually similar to defer@ or async@ on <script>.
