Why? It is javascript, isn't it? Do you still use document.write()? It 
should not be used in XHTML, it is actually not possible to 
document.write() anything into a real XHTML document! If the answer is 
no, and you use DOM, then it does not matter, where is that hook...

All form elements in Drupal already have ID attributes, which makes then 
extremely easy to get from JavaScript (and add attributes).
