I'd vote either, for now.  Turning off scripts would turn off the scripting
engine, normally.  Turning off styles would turn off the style engine,
normally.  Seems like you need both of those for BeCSS to work.

I could see a three-way option on styles like:

All styles
Only behavior styles
No styles

For scripts, I don't think that makes sense, as people trying to turn off
scripting generally want it really off.

Good question!
