Status: Accepted
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: 

Even with the mutation events as they are now, so long as the accessibility
tool waits for the event loop to spin, it's sufficient. This is actually
already defined in the spec: the event loop specifically says that UI is only
updated on step 5, between tasks.

Now if the issue is that a script is updating things in multiple tasks, then
that's covered by the ARIA live region feature. You would just turn the updates
in the region off for a while.
