That was my take on it as well, but I don't think it's obvious that
calling wp_enqueue_script before 'init' is problematic (there's a
mention of it in the Codex, but I didn't see it there until I searched
the page for 'init').  It doesn't seem to be mentioned in many of the
examples out in the wild.

I probably *could*, but I specifically chose wp_default_scripts to
ensure my plugin had minimal unintended consequences.  I wanted to be
sure to step out of the way of anything doing wp_deregister_script/
wp_register_script to override any of the default scripts.
