 Steve Souders Rule #6 is to put JS on the bottom[1].  While it's not
 always practical (especially for an existing codebase) it should be
 possible for themes to define how JS loads, in particular jQuery.

 It would be cool if there was an ability when developing themes to defer
 jQuery to the footer.  This is a potential performance improvement for
 some slower sites.
