At the end of section 3.4 it states "If any condition which affects the distribution result changes, the distribution result must be updated before any use of the distribution result." which basically means you can't make use of a "dirty" tree. > Secondly, could someone produce a code snippet that would cause such interop > problems, given the current spec? var x = new Event(eventType) someNodeThatIsDistributed.addEventListener(eventType, e => console.log(e.path)) someNodeThatIsDistributed.dispatchEvent(ev); > Finally, assuming we have such an example, would there be a way to tighten > the spec language such that we don't need to specify e.g. when style > recalculation happens, but instead specify constraints? Like "offsetTop must > always reflect the redistributions" or something. That is what the specification currently does and what prevents us from defining an imperative API. For an imperative API it is imperative (mahaha) that we get the timing with respect to tasks right. (Or as per my proposal, leave timing up to developers.) -- https://annevankesteren.nl/
