The relative order with onload should be documented.

By looking at the patch, it seems that insertion the events fire before document.write() becomes permitted (if applicable) and after it becomes forbidden again. Whether the handlers for these events should be able to call document.write() without blowing away has a dependency on the resolution of http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=9984 and the relative order of the new events and onload.
