Surely mapping things to an EventListener interface, which is meant to
be language independent construct, is more sensible than mapping
everything to ES Function objects, something that is language specific.

This also wouldn't scale to any interface that requires more than one
method to be implemented on it.

So that it actually implements EventListener? :)
