Yes, true. I thought that's what you were asking for...

Does IE even support adding a child element to a <script>?
One problem with what the spec currently says, if I read it correctly,
is that it doesn't round-trip scripts correctly, at least as far as I
can see. What Gecko serializes as the innerHTML of the script is
something that, if you set the script's innerHTML to that value, will
give a script that is equivalent to the original one if it's executed.
That doesn't seem to be the case for the spec's current behavior...
