Regarding ISSUE-8, seems like we have consensus to fire the visibilitychange event after pagehide and before pageshow. I am assuming this also means to fire the visibilitychange event prior to the firing of the unload event? I will make the necessary spec updates to reflect this behavior. 

About the additional proposed visibiltyState attribute values, I recommend we should at least keep "unloaded". The purpose of the visibilityState attribute is to provide more granular data on the current visibility state than the hidden Boolean does. This state will allow a developer to make an informed decision of whether or not to run additional code during the unload process. I can't see any obvious problems with including this data.
