I can understand the concerns about JavaScript being written into the core. The point that cool2sv and others are making is that all the javascript that is written inline into the core code could be removed and the same functionality could be provided by adding events to DOM objects in external scripts. By doing this we could abstract away the absolute need for any particular JavaScript library, even though we would almost certainly include one in the core. If this was done then people could emulate the JavaScript functionality included in the core using other JavaScript libraries that better suit them. It is a cleaner and more flexible approach. That being said, there is quite a lot of work and testing to be done to achieve this for what may generally have limited benefit. Still, I think it should be considered and maybe even ticketed as an enhancement.
