My reading matches @chrisn 's and seems to be backed up by the note under step 6:

> The event thus is not to be fired faster than about 66Hz or slower than 4Hz (assuming the event handlers don't take longer than 250ms to run).

And it is clear that it is possible that even if the event is _cued_ every 250ms the handlers themselves may be _called_ even less frequently depending on what other scripts are running.

Having said that, I don't see a problem with your proposed changes @tidoust which clearly tie the issue to real world problems in existing implementations without suggesting those implementations are not spec-compliant.
