Interesting. Alternatively, you can add .onwhatever handlers, as well as define your own overload of addEventListener (which will be called instead of the EventTarget.addEventListener method). That way you can capture all attempts at setting events on your element.

Subject: Callback when an event handler has been added to a custom element

Hi!

We are using message ports to communicate with our logic and are wrapping the API into a custom element. The issue is that we would like to call start on a message port only after user has registered an event handler on the custom element instance. But it seems there is no way to get a callback when an event handler is added.

So I am suggesting that there should be a callback every time an event listener is added to a custom element (and possibly one when removed).
