This is already implicitly required. The loadedmetadata event is queued 
from a task, therefore the event loop must spin at least once for the 
event to be fired. The penultimate step of the event loop is "If 
necessary, update the rendering or user interface of any Document or 
browsing context to reflect the current state".
