adding 'option' into 'select'...

How is this way of adding options into select (dropdown list)?

I think, this can't not be called 'no scriptlet' code. We have just changed the position of code (moved code in script from scriptlet). I don't think, a good idea.

What's your opinion?

I agree. Why use scritplet code to create JavaScript that will populate the options on the client when you can just populate the options directly on the server?
