[Bug 16790] New: The term microtask should be defined


           Summary: The term microtask should be defined
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC

            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: LC1 HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)

Currently in the HTML specification, a definition and algorithmic description
of how to perform a microtask checkpoint exists.  Additionally, we should
define what exactly constitutes a microtask.  

This could in turn be used in other specifications, such as the File API, which
could use the concept of a microtask to describe when to revoke an object URL
(Blob URL), and in IndexedDB.
