Hmmm...I'm not sure that they can.  For a script-only stack to be truly 
script-only, it would need to be saved only as the stack script in a 
text file.

If later the mainstack of a script-only stack is changed to be a binary 
stack, I would imagine that the script-only stack would no longer be 
script-only, attached to the new mainstack as a binary stack since it's 
now part of the binary structure of the mainstack.
