[whatwg] Script preloading

About a week ago, I presented a set of code comparing the <script dependencies=..> approach to the <script preload> approach, as far as creating generalized script loaders.

There were a number of concerns presented in those code snippets, and the surrounding discussions. I asked for input on the code and the issues raised.

Later in the thread, I also identified issues with needing to more robustly handle "error recovery" and it was suggested that Navigation Controller was a good candidate for partnering with script loading for this task. I asked for some code input in that respect as well.

AFAICT, the thread basically went dormant at roughly the same time.

I'm sure people are busy with plenty of other things, so I'm not trying to be annoying or impatient. But I would certainly like for the thread not to die, but to instead make productive progress.

If you have any feedback on the code comparisons I posted earlier (https://gist.github.com/getify/5976429) please do feel free to share.
