It's really a range depending on what you're trying to do: before init
is too early; default wp_head is too late.

I would strongly recommend that front-end scripts not be enqueued in
the admin, so that means checking that is_admin() returns false if a
front-end conditional "tag" like is_singular() isn't already used.
