It may be in the future that the location of the script within the page 
affects its security status.
(Or, to put it another way, authors may wish to put all their script 
e.g. within the <head> to allow them to use XSS mitigation measures.)

Therefore, we should try, as far as possible, not to impose restrictions 
which dictate where in the page a particular script needs to be.
