bz probably knows more about the constraints than I do.

I don't know what the Web requires to be synchronous. I just know that the
Gecko-internal API for stopping the parser has to be synchronous and can be
called with the most unexpected things on the call stack. It took many
iterations to cover enough edge cases to stop the influx of bug reports about
it.
