In theory the component itself could provide hooks in its constructor to
provide a callback, or dispatch a custom event on itself.

I can’t really think of the use case for this. When would you want to do this?

> c) when all upgrades of all known definitions are complete?

This would be useful because at that point you can detect errors, if any
elements you expected to be upgraded have not been upgraded. Does it make sense
to expose a nodelist of elements needing upgrade?

I think the crucial datum in the proposed event is relating the old element
with the upgraded replacement. So I think one of the mutations (removal or
insertion) would need an extra property indicating the replacement/replaced
element.

I think a new kind of mutation isn’t desirable because it would be nice if
something using Mutation Observers to look for any kind of change doesn’t need
to map an "upgrade" mutation to a removal and insertion.
