That seems okay to me.  I don't think we need a special "function" type,
because in fact most of the users of Function in HTML should get a callback
with a specific signature, not just any old function.

(It seems to make no actual difference what the signature for the callback is,
except that it theoretically guarantees the type of the parameters and puts
some constraints on how some return values will behave.  But it's still handy
as documentation.)
