Ah. I assumed that change and input didn't bubble. That makes my case weaker

Since change and input bubble, I don't. I do need to name="" my <output>s and
put the logic further away from the <output>s, but that's not a big deal.

Each <output> updates its own value when something changes. Just a different
coding style.
