Michel, I would just like to cast my vote for this.  In general I tend
to like event notifications because they don't add too much complexity
to the framework and they are very flexible.  I would really like to
see this in place in the Squeak codebase as well.

I have a naming suggestion though, if you don't mind.  How about
#raiseWithRenderer:andTagName:?  It sounds more fluid to me than
#raiseRenderer:tagName: (everybody's a critic, sorry).
