What event do you suggest to dispatch in the worker when connect() is  
called? From the above, it formally follows that a MessageEvent with  
name "message" is dispatched, so a handler could also be installed as

addEventListener("message", onConnect, true);

This doesn't look very intuitive or straightforward, considering that  
message event handlers are also installed by ports to listen to
