This pattern in general (not just for EventListener) seems to have some
people for and some against it.  The default (if you don’t use
[Callback=something]) is to allow it.  I think we should have a
discussion on public-script-coord or somewhere similar to get spec
authors to agree on whether this default is correct, and to override the
default only if needed for compatibility.
