Hi Robin,

Good point!

In the email and attachment starting this thread I included the comment that AspectRatioChangeEvent could be realized with ResolutionChangeEvent. With your comment the question is whether we need ResolutionChangeEvent if we already have onresize.
We have change from pull model (onresize is invoked, but the resolution has to be fetched separately) to push model (new dimensions are in the event). Do we need ResolutionChangeEvent then?
Any opinion?

I think that's a good idea.

I think that these are useful events, but I'd like to make sure we're
not duplicating existing stuff. Notably, how is AspectRatioChangeEvent
different from onresize?
