In terms of the ProgressEvents spec the 'loadend' event would be dispatched following either of 'abort', 'load' or 'error', and there must be exactly one 'loadend' event dispatched. In the Event definitions table it would look like this:

If the event were dispatched last, and there was a progress bar, plus
an overlay, then the success handler would fire before the progress
bar + overlay were hidden/removed.
