He's talking about an async interface to it, not the core parser.  It's a
higher level of abstraction than the core language, which doesn't know
anything about eg. DOM Events and doesn't typically define asynchronous
interfaces.  If an API like this was to be exposed (which I believe is
unnecessary), it would belong here or webapps, not at the language level.
