Events and promises must work in workers. I am awaiting a fix to
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=22646 before making
this crystal clear among a number of specifications. E.g. TextEncoder
/ TextDecoder from http://encoding.spec.whatwg.org/ also ought to work
in workers. As does URL from http://url.spec.whatwg.org/ (one of the
primary use cases for exposing URL parsing in the first place).
