I instead added a new section upfront that attempts to summarize the  
debate thus far:

http://wiki.whatwg.org/wiki/Modifications#Invoking_Modification_Listeners

What we are missing is input from library authors (though I suppose we are  
getting some here from Google, that is not entirely clear to me). Is there  
a pain with mutation events for them or is that restricted to UA  
implementors?

The end of task approach has a problem with showModalDialog(). Is this  
going to be a problem with <dialog modal> as well? Any other constructs?  
showModalDialog() may be bad practice, but <dialog modal> is not.


In addition to that I think it would be great if Rafael could expand on  
point 6 and 7 made in  
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webapps/2011JulSep/0779.html so  
that we can hash that out as well against what Olli has proposed thus far.
