Launch requestIdleCallback

Project Member Reported by, Jul 28 2015

Issue description

Change description:
An API which allows posting of tasks which are schedule during periods when the browser is idle, and are passed a deadline when called which is calculated based on how long the browser expects to remain idle. This enables developers to perform background work on the main event loop, without impact latency-critical events such as animation and input response.

Changes to API surface:
- window.requestIdleCallback
- IdleDeadline object

Editors Draft Spec:

Support in other browsers:
Internet Explorer: Mixed public signals
Firefox: public support
Safari: no public signals
