Yes, that's the kind of thing I was getting at--you therefore have a
clearly defined point where you can draw the line. However, you need
to define in some way that models and instances are processed before
images and objects, which is still difficult. The other option is to
have some kind of delayed evaluation, in much the same way that
libraries like Dojo and YUI allow for event registration to be carried
out on objects that don't yet exist.

momentum building for the DOMContentLoaded event, and I think we
