/**
* An elvis ("element of vision") is a data structure that can be displayed in the browser screen.
* Elvises are abstract data structures, characterized by the events they can post (the "sources")
* and their accessors.
*
* ** Relationships between Elvises and Xhtml
* - elvises are not xhtml (although they are certainly implemented as such)
* - elvises are not referenced by their ID
* - for display, elvises are inserted into xhtml
* - styling, positioning, etc. are done with CSS and selectors, through the indirection of the [Styler] widget
* - DOM events are used to implement Elvis, but they are low-level informations, not meant to be seen outside the Elvis
*
* ** Events
* - each Elvis publishes a number of [source]s, corresponding the events it can send
* - a channel or a function can be registered to listen on a [source], and possibly unregistered later
* - an Elvis MUST NOT listen to its own [source]s
*
* ** Implementation guidelines
* - Each xhtml node in an Elvis should have a class name
*/
/**
* {1 Standard event names}
*
* - [{chosen: void}] -- a button was pressed, an item was selected in a list, etc.
* - [{value_changed: {old: 'a new:'a}}]
* - [{value_rejected:{old: 'a rejected:'b}}]
