You may not be aware of this, but <cfhtmlhead> is a tag that can be used to
insert text into the head.  It appears that this works this way:  The server
concatenates every call to <cfhtmlhead> together and modifies the finalized
text stream (inserting the text just before </head>) just before it gets
sent to the web server for output over the line.  While not perfectly
elegant, it'll let you close the <head> tag and still insert stuff into it

Caveat, I have not tested <cfhtmlhead> with the new buffer flushing feature
of CF 5.0.... something tells me it would not work too well.
