If there were a standardised namespace for extension elements and
functions, an alternative would be to put xxx:script into that.

<xslx:script xmlns:xslx="...">... whatever

That would mean that it would automatically be ignored by default
according to XSLT 1.0 rules, and would be a stronger indication
to implementors that they needn't support this, in particular they could
still claim "full conformance" to XSLT without doing anything with
this element at all.
