Discussion on: Why hasn't the 'script' tag gotten a void version, yet? (E.g. 'extscript')

Well, honestly, why should it have to face any hurdles, like with your last example of security, since it wouldn't be any more than a shortening of the current syntax, so whatever you can do with that, you could do with this.

And again, why not just support <script src=""/>?
Just have it be an accepted way of doing it, like you said, how it handles <svg>. Personally, I see nothing wrong with this approach, and I don't see why this hasn't really been corrected for the sake of HTML tag length.
