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.
