[whatwg] "Script Data" tokenizer mode

When the "script data" state was added to the tokenizer, the tree construction
algorithm was updated to switch the tokenizer into this state upon finding a
start tag named "script" while in the "in head" insertion mode ( I see
that a corresponding change was not made to 9.5 about "Parsing HTML Fragments"
as it still says to switch into the RAWTEXT state upon finding a "script" tag.
Does anyone know if this difference is intentional, or did someone just forget
to update the fragment parsing case?
