Hi, Ian-

Thanks for your quick response.

I'm assuming that the plan is for it to be compatible with existing specs
and implementations?  That would be great.  I think it's entirely
appropriate for a dedicated spec on something like script element processing
to go into much more detail than a spec like SVG, which is of course focused
on its own subject matter.  Nevertheless, if you have any particular points
that SVG should pick up on, please let us know.

Thanks for all your hard work in unifying behavior across UAs.  Such
intensive testing is often a thankless task, but it's very worthwhile.
