   *     type to highest, in order registered)
   *   + (in the future) which observers are suppressed when the display
   *     doesn't require current position data or isn't currently
   *     painting, and, correspondingly, which get notified when there
   *     is a flush during such suppression
   * and it must be either Flush_Style, Flush_Layout, or Flush_Display.
   * The refresh driver does NOT own a reference to these observers;
   * they must remove themselves before they are destroyed.
