Comment:
"User agents may wait for a suitable break in the user's interaction before
queuing the task; for example, a user agent could wait for the user to have
not hit a key for 100ms, so as to only fire the event when the user pauses,
instead of continuously for each keystroke."  Does any browser actually do
this?  If not, it should be removed, because it's misleading.  Boris thinks
he's seen pages that would break if a browser did that:
