As you mentioned, a possible good definition of timeouts is that a 'timeout' event should fire (which will trigger ontimeout) and then abort() should be called which will result in an 'abort' even (which will trigger onabort).

Sounds good to me. Would be great to hear what other people think on
having timeout in general and the specifics regarding what should
happen when the timeout fires.
