Whether you directly write (X)HTML or whether your stylesheet is supposed to generate (X)HTML I would strongly suggest to aim at valid documents (i.e. html, head, body, and script and style where they belong). In the text/html world you might get way with not having any html or head or body elements and just throwing fragments of documents at the browser but I don't think this is a good idea in the case of X(HT)ML to expect the browser to guess what you want and add html or head or body element as needed.
Well if you want to use script then you need an element the browser recognizes as having script code, so with HTML that is the 'script' element in no namespace, with XHTML it is the 'script' element in the XHTML namespace http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml, with SVG it is the 'script' element in the SVG namespace. Browsers like Mozilla or Opera might even recognize the XHTML script element inside mixed namespace XML documents.
