I will. This part is quite dense and complicated but important 
especially with the upcoming ES7 work on the event loop to make sure it 
is sufficiently low-level to implement (in spec and/or code) the browser 
event loop model.

I have to admit that the idea of forging in ES7 the "2 nested event 
loops" model seems that it may rule out valuable use cases. I would be 
in favor of some spec freedom here in the message ordering/reordering 
policy. Let's see where this go.

Thanks for your message,
