I think that in implementations they are not shared. I think in practice
implementations have one event loop per render process—so an event loop
isn’t shared among multiple render processes, and a task queue feeds only
one event loop. (Otherwise it’s hard to imagine how things would work.)

Yeah, I think that’s correct.

I say all this with the caveat that I’m not someone who’s actually
implemented any of it, so you probably want to either hear from somebody
who has implemented it or who has a less fuzzy idea than I do about the
actual implementations do things.
