Considering this event fires after the visibility has changed, I don't think it should, or can be, cancelable. Particularly, I don't think we can preventDefault for page visibility - e.g., we can't stop the user from minimizing the browser.

You'll need to explicitly say that it's not cancelable too. So
something like "...simple event that bubbles, but isn't cancelable,

Other than that it sounds good.
