Minor nit:

  s/proposed alternative/simple strawman to illustrate the point/

I just want the behavior or something that comes close without
necessarily having to resort to aggressive filtering.  That is, I don't
necessarily want to eliminate scripts from the comments, I just want to
be able to limit their impact.

Either way, I'm fully aware that any new invention here would take a
while to actually work.
