To be more precise, the only issues we know of are
and http://bugs.jquery.com/ticket/8744 which are caused by libraries
assuming that a script will no longer execute once removed from the
document when doing the JSONP thing. It's not site breakage per se, but
does cause random exceptions to be thrown (which don't affect site
functionality, as far as I can tell).
