FWIW I'm going to push for the Mozilla implementation to dispatch
only when an event is clearly terminated with a blank line (I filed
the bug). If EOF is encountered w/out a blank line it should be
considered an incomplete/corrupted event.

The "fix" for the spec would be to drop the line

   Once the end of the file is reached, the user agent must
   dispatch the event one final time, as defined below.

For clarity something explicit could be added

   If the end of the file is reached while collecting
   data and before encountering a blank line the incomplete
   event must not be dispatched.
