This is evidence of a real-world use case in a popular library.

(Prototype's callbacks do not appear to be event publishers.
Additionally, the w3c Events spec also provides callback-autonomy. One
callback's error won't cause failure in the notification system. It is
as if it is thrown in a new thread.)
