If I can speculate, I think that the whole idea of the asynchronous tasks is to do the 'job' outside of the animations update procedure. If that is the only reason to use the microtask queue, I would vote for a specific queue, that holds the tasks that were queued during the animations update, and just after the update, to run this tasks. Because this tasks by themselfs cant queue any more tasks, this queue will run linearly. Maybe before or after step 2 in "update animations and send events". Then when the microtasks queue is not at all used, the promises may do any kind of job, and will never stall the engine.
