I'm not sure if this is covered by the wording or not...

I would like to create an element with a reference to an external resource
after the document has been loaded from JavaScript (possibly on a user
initiated event).  I need to query geometric properties of this element in
order to create more elements.  So I would like an event that is triggered
when the external resource has been loaded and the geometric query (getBBox)
can be made.  I had assumed that using externalResourcesRequired and
registering a onload event with the element would handle this.  (In at least
one current implementation, ASV6, the onload event is never triggered.)

Will the wording cover this situation?
