   I agree that there are a lot of events, and actually we have also  
been talking about coalescing all of the ready state and network state  
events into readystatechange and networkstatechange. One potential  
problem with this is that a script could miss state transitions  
because the readyState or networkState attributes may have changed  
between the time an event is posted and when the script's listener is  
triggered. I haven't thought this through enough to know if it will be  
a serious problem or not.
