Because multiple pieces of code on the page may need to do this
independently.  For example, you may have widgets on the page that need to
send a request to a server to figure out what to display.  The approach I
suggested handles this, and could easily fire an event on the document

I have to wonder whether authors would really use this, though, regardless
of what the API looks like.
