My personal take is that short-circuit evaluation is useful enough to
warrant a MUST. But I'd rather have a statement saying scripts MUST
NOT take advantage of short-circuit evaluation than one saying
implementations MAY do it.

Okay, scripts can't currently take advantage of short-circuit

If an extension exists that makes it possible to use short-circuit
evaluation, could we have that extension change this assumption?
