[whatwg] <noscript> should be allowed in <head>

I'm not in favor of this.

As Anne pointed out, <noscript> is used to display alternative content
that <script> would have shown.  The kind of content that goes only in
<body>, usually block elements, and never in <head>.

If the WebKit developers want to follow IE's broken model on parsing
even basic HTML like <noscript>, be my guest, but don't try to force
this into HTML 5 and make it a standard.
