I don't really understand the constraints imposed by that architecture.  I'm
not sure it's a good idea to ignore these writes.  They could contain markup
that's important to the functioning of the page.

Wouldn't you just need to round-trip to the main thread before processing EOF? 
That doen't seem like very fancy coordination.
