           Summary: WebIDL callbacks should probably default to pushing a

Looks like we set up incumbent settings objects here, but not entry ones.  We
need to do the latter in various case.  For example, event dispatch certainly
needs to do it; otherwise you end up running event listeners with no entry
settings object, but various other specs depend on having an entry settings
object.

I believe the simplest thing to do here is to always set the entry settings
object to the global of the callback object (which is NOT the same thing as the
global of the function getting called, for what it's worth).
