We've had a few iterations trying to come up with better names for these two
callbacks, but the recent review with Mozilla app developers revealed that we
are still not hitting the target.

The intuitively proposed "inserted" and "removed" aren't quite fitting either,
because they don't actually reflect
http://dom.spec.whatwg.org/#concept-node-insert and
http://dom.spec.whatwg.org/#concept-node-remove.

To avoid "view" terminology (which developers aren't that familiar with) and
"entered/left" confusion ("leftview? why not rightview?"), we settle on
something simpler: "attached" and "detached".
