I'm not sure I follow.  What is not going to block on what with this change?

As far as I can tell, "0 1 2" in your testcase at
is consistent with the following order of execution:

1)  x=0
2)  x1=0,x=1 (nothing else has run yet because we're waiting on
3)  setTimeout fires, sets x2 = 1
3)  second external script runs, sets x = 2.

So it looks like the second external script in your testcase there is in 
fact blocking on the stylesheet... or something.  And I'm not sure how 
reconcile that with the behavior at 

What am I missing?
