Script loading blocks parsing (modulo the rarely-used @defer), so a 
not-yet-available script can be pretty bad.

This does raise a good question, though.  Is there a requirement that no 
rendering happen until the fonts are loaded?  Or could a UA just do normal font 
fallback, then relayout when the font loads?
