At first it looked like you described a way to shoot yourself in the 
foot and wanted a safety on the gun to prevent that.

When I re-read it I come to the same conclusion. The order of the 
markers matter in this case. JavaScript doesn't have its own priority 
but simply uses the order in which the scripts appear in the source.

That way you could drop the various markers. It would require some 
"before-X" and "after-Y" finetuning options to be able to properly 
position parts in the queue. An extra challenge would be to position 
items relatively to items which are not yet in the queue (e.g. extension 
"A" inserts JS which depends on library "c", but this library is added 
to the queue by extension "B" which is loaded after extension "A")

Could be a solution indeed, but then again why would you change the 
order of the markers in the template and how many people would need such 
a changed template?
