Details

For proper implementation of the WebIDL interface for the custom highlight API (Bug 1703961) a callback is needed that executes when elements are added to or removed from the setlike/maplike.

This callback is especially helpful in combination with adding functions for iterating over the setlike/maplike contents from C++ (Bug 1799890).

FWIW it'd probably be even better to just fix maplike/setlike to not require the JS set object (bug 1311198). I posted a WIP patch there that I was working on but never got around to finish.

Edgar, what is your opinion on this?

Add contentChange callback should be trivial, we could hook add() and remove() in binding code. But for helper for iterating might be a bit tricky (I commented in Bug 1799890).
