Can someone explain how those events work?  What do theese events do?
What code generates them?

Why does it function that way, rather than by calling Lisp directly?

This is a bad idea, at the deepest level, because it means supporting
Emacs extensibility in two separate ways, with separate
implementations.  That would make Emacs far more complex.

We should not support Emacs extensibility in Javascript.
