Hey all,

There's no onchange attribute on output elements, in stead the spec 
tells you to use DOM mutation events. Thsoe are a pain to use, and 
there's no declarative way to register handlers (in HTML at least). Why 
not support what developers are used to when dealing with form controls, 
onchange="..."?
