There's one other fundamental limitation of the readyState approach which I
forgot about: it's impossible to defer execution of inline scripts.  It
inherently only works for external scripts.  <script noexecute> can be
applied to inline scripts.

I don't have a strong opinion of whether this is important, since big
scripts are usually external, but it seemed worth mentioning.
