Well the default browser loader which is still secret(?) purportedly
standardizes on a "js" suffix. That is probably why this came up.

(I think text/javascript is just fine btw. text/* works great for HTML
and CSS too. In any event, for the purposes of the browser JavaScript
does not really have a MIME type. We parse anything we get...)
