I think if we fire 'suspend' at the end, what's more likely to happen is that
instead of just ignoring the event and having the element still mostly work,
authors will wait for 'suspend' and treat it like 'onload', not starting to use
the resource until it happens, and when it does, assuming the whole thing is
cached. So for example they would load a sound effects file, wait for
'suspend', and then once it fires start playing back clips from anywhere in the
file expecting zero latency.

Why is this not worse?
