Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: I disagree. I think that if we _don't_ have this in the spec,
tutorials will be forced to tell people over and over "don't forget to call
start(), man, isn't it lame that it isn't called automatically". They don't
have to say anything at all at the moment. I don't think anyone will even
realise anything magical is happening here unless they are advanced authors
registering multiple event listeners, and then they'll be happy that it doesn't
also happen in that case.
