[Bug 12466] Why the word pop? Seems so ambiguous. I would have gone with statechange, or historychange. I'd like to know the reason behind the decision for popstate?

'push' and 'pop' are well-established in computer science as referring to the
basic operations you can perform on a stack, which your history is.
