Perhaps it would be more clear like that: one may want to consider
a script as a program/application that can be executed, in which
case application/* should be used; but one may also want to regard
it as text, in which case text/plain can be used. The IETF doesn't
forbid such a choice.
text/x-* could be regarded as non-standard variants of text/plain,
while still providing language information.

the source, meant as visible as text, then text/plain and text/x-*
