There are two "problems" with your code. #linkToScript: was deprecated
in 2.7 and removed in 2.8 because if its non-canvas-ishness. This
makes it hard to configure and shows in exactly such cases. Second
"the correct way" (tm) to deal with attributes that have no value in
HTML is to put true as a value. So ideally your code would read:

aRoot if lessThan; ie7; do: [
   aRoot javascript
       attributeAt: 'defer' put: true;
       url: (WATCFileLibrary urlOf: #pngfixJs) ]

Seaside2.8a1-pmm.487 adds #defer to WAScriptElement and WAScriptTag.
Although we are officially in code freeze I think this goes ok. If
somebody has a problem with this I can remove it and start 2.9 today.
As usual the code is copy pasted because we don't need no stinkin'

Now you can do:

aRoot if lessThan; ie7; do: [
   aRoot javascript
       url: 'pngfix.js' ]
