So I don't want to block the spec on this issue. We're currently 
basing the design on `EventTarget`, but are ready to change this 
should consensus arise around `Observable`, `EventEmitter` or whatnot,
 in the relevant circles (TC39, I guess?).

While I know that swapping  `EventTarget` for `EventEmitter` would 
take me a minute, I'm not so sure such a change would be that simple 
with `Observable`. @zenparsing and others interested by that topic, it
 would be great if you could have a look at the new API design 
proposals (#46) and comment on whether they would be easily adaptable 
or not, and if not, what modifications would be needed to make them 
forward compatible with `Observable`.
