I think that's almost right.

My initial thought was to formulate it as: when any operation
completes and the state is "stable", then consider the conditions for
firing the event.  I.e., have any changes to the session been
requested that aren't reflected in the current session state.  I think
that you also need to consider updateIce in addition to

I don't know that the queue being empty is a necessary condition.  I
think that it is probably OK to fire the event even though there is
something enqueued that might cause a transition out of the "stable"
