Comment (by GermanKiwi):

 Hi @SergeyBiryukov et al,

 I have a plugin which adds a `<script>` tag to the footer of every page,
 and the tag includes the `type="module"` attribute.

 I've discovered that if I use the "add_theme_support" function to add
 html5 support for scripts, it not only results in the
 `type="text/javascript"` attribute being removed from all `<script>` tags,
 but the `type="module"` attribute is also removed too, which is a problem
 - this attribute is still needed and still valid under HTML5.

 The description of this patch at the top of this page is incorrect to
 state that "type is no more required" under HTML5 - in fact, only the
 JavaScript MIME type is no longer required. Other values for type, such as
 "module", are still valid:

 Question: is it possible the patch provided here is also stripping out the
 `type="module"` attribute?

 If so, could that please be reversed or fixed, so that this attribute is
 not removed?
