Adobe's Air has reasonably tight integration with WebKit. Not to the 
extent  being proposed here, but it is an active example.
I think this issue is better examined from the scope of webkit than from 
the realm of universal web technologies.

Unless I'm misunderstanding something, the proposal here is that webkit 
support <script type> in a sufficient manner.

What individual webkit vendors do with that is up to them.
