Scripts should be at the bottom of the page. Not sure how they got moved.
In terms of inline JS, the only thing that should be inline is the
rendered widget representation.  This strategy allows for the rendering
engine to output any HTML representation of the widget as it is rendered,
thus supporting multiple render styles (including inlined widgets).  If
there is a better strategy that someone can think of, I am all for
improvements :).  Other than that and some init calls, there *shouldn't*
be any inline JS.
