I've used a hack solution, turn off validation and place the script in 
the body (if you place it in the header it doesn't get copied across).

This is the filtering stage of page creation. We've not actually done 
much with this yet, but it has been talked about a number of times. See

(original discussion starts here )

If you have a use case for this then maybe you would like to come up 
with a proposal?

[WISH LIST] This should complement the locations plugin very well. It 
would be great to see the Google maps plugin extract location info from 
files provided for the locations plugin and display them in the map.

Nope, at least not if you think the only way to do it is with 
Javascript. The Script tag is not one of the tags we intend to support.
