After discussing this with Jan-Erik I couldn't resist trying out custom events. And from what I could gather this is pretty straight forward, even for IE9+ compatibility, without any need for relying on some library.

I've put together a small sample http://jsfiddle.net/ExFnE/1/ and tested it in Chrome (OS X), Firefox (OS X), Safari (OS X), IE9 (native), IE10 (native) where it works.

There are some minor changes if there's need for IE8 support, but currently I don't think we will support that browser anyway and if we want to at some point I'd be happy to write the necessary fallbacks..

I like this approach better than relying on jQuery even if we could make it work with exposing the RequireJS version somehow and I also think it's better than exposing some global callback/event handler function/object.
