Re: [Events] removeEventListener on EventListeners currently being processed

That shows that several folk raised the issue of  that
change introducing an asymmetry with respect to
addEventListener(), which should have been dealt
with at the same time.

I think the corresponding change on the addEventListener
side is a guarantee that a listener added to the current
node _will_ be invoked as appropriate.  That still leaves
the order of event delivery loosely defined, but doesn't
create a surprise in the API model.  (And it'd certainly
reduce implementation complexity.)
