I fully agree with this, in fact I thought I'd said so before, but couldn't
see it in the archives...

Hmm, one problem with this approach is that adding the event listener after
the createAndStart is a bit of a pain.

my favoured option would be to have a copy of dispatchEvent which takes a
time aswell:

someObj.dispatchEventDelayed(myEvt, 500);

And perhaps allow the window interface to also catch events so you could do:

window.dispatchEventDelayed(myEvt, 500);

and avoid any bubbling etc. issues (it going straight and only to the window
