I'm looking forward to some standardization effort on this point.

Yes, but as far as I can tell from the algorithm , the browsing context
isn't created until step 8, after the URL in data="" has been resolved and
 are run, there's no browsing context, and it will be treated as any
other inline. This is a good thing IMO, as it would be quite confusing if
the context in which the script executed depended on the expected type of
the <object> content.
The spec change that I'm suggesting is to remove the case "If the Document
object of the element, attribute, or style sheet from which the
would mean (among other things) that <object data="javscript:..."> would
never execute. But again, let's wait a little bit longer and see if any
compat issues arise.
