I think you will find that this has no direct effect on accessibility.
As I am sure you know, if you rely on these methods for navigation, or
if that select isn't made keyboard-friendly, then that is a problem, but
inline JavaScript on its own is fine. In some circumstances it is better
to have it as an external script file, but only for management reasons,
not for operational reasons, if that makes sense?

Similarly, I think you can afford to ignore that validation warning - I
have yet to come across a browser that tries to run JavaScript as
anything else.
