The former I would say.

Currently there is none, so maybe we should not do this for now and  
instead require them to be set separately just as with WebSocket and  

As for callbacks versus events, you would generally use events if you  
expect multiple independent listener functions to be useful. Events might  
also be more useful in the future if you want to extend some  
functionality. I guess we'd have to look at use cases again if we want to  
reconsider the current design.
