Loading the libraries from Google improves the cachability of the  
javascript - as you say, if other web pages load the library from  
Google, it may already be in the cache, and we can avoid a network  
request to fetch it. But it true regardless of whether you put tags  
directly into the head or use google.load().

The value of google.load() is that you can load the libraries  
dynamically, based on information only available on the client, or in  
response to a user action. If you don't need that capability, it's  
better to just put tags in the head, as Lukas suggested.
