I am still rather uncomfortable with this issue, not only because we have not
yet reached  consensus, but because I haven't really seen the right points made
on either side of the debate.

On the "must happen in Workers" side, I mostly see (in e.g Marcus' Comment #3)
the idea that we should make sure not to let developers do anything bad. I am
not fully confortable with that - thought our job was to enable and empower,
and if need be to document best practices. There *were* a few mentions that
limiting custom processing to workers would solve other issues (see recent
thread on the delay caused by the custom nodes) - which are more interesting
IMHO and should probably be developed.

On the other side of the debate, Chris mentioned a few times that developers
were not comfortable with using workers - something that should be taken
seriously if we are to follow our pyramid of constituencies - developers over
implementors over spec designers; but IIRC we haven't really validated with a
significant sample of developers that it would indeed be an issue. I know the
W3C doesn't really do user testing, but that may be a good way to prove (or
disprove) Chris' point.
