And that's something that helps our communication mechanism scale—providing the right data in the right place.

Not only does the data need to be there, readily available for consumption by each callback function, but it also needs to have a predictable structure. We'll look at approaches to establish naming conventions for the event names themselves, as well as the data that's passed along to the handler functions. We can make inter-component communication a little more transparent, and thus more scalable, by making sure that the required event data is present and unlikely to be misinterpreted.

Coming up with meaningful names is hard, especially when there...
