I think that for the bulk write usecase it is more probable that the
writer wants to disable the firing of (all) event handlers on its path and
fire them at once at the end. So basically with the exclusion pattern
there should be a predefined global excluded userdata that one can set on
the ObservationManager in order to avoid all listeners. Otherwise the
mechanism only works if the listener acts proactively on it (which might
be more sane in the end :) ).
