Comment (by azaozz):

 This is already enabled with the updates to script loader:

 Loading jQuery in the footer is not advisable as that delays the
 jQuery(document).ready() call. This would normally run "onDomReady"
 letting the script execute and manipulate the DOM in parallel with loading
 the rest of the page (usually images).

 There's a nice visual representation of this in Firebug's Net tab, where
 "DOMContentLoaded" and "load" events are clearly marked.
