I'll go ahead with that. The first time around, I was asked about the 
security / quota model.
I'd prefer to just say that it's "out of scope", though there are 
proposals. I see no reason to derail things on that issue.

Many vendors are working with low-level languages running in machine 
code: is there a quick hack/means
to describing the event loop model? Should I sheepishly leave that part out?

Most of these developers are working with simple sync/async libraries 
that are called from C and C++.

The event loop is fundamental to some behaviors; it's assumed in the 
specification. But, it's not something I really want to get hung-up on.
Ideas for how to avert that? Is it unethical to simply not bring it up?

Is it something that they're going to have to figure out on their own? 
Such as with an "endloop" private extended function.
