This is an interesting idea, but probably not. This would be quite tricky, as Worker code is generally expecting main thread to be available, and there can be quite a bit or work happening behind the scenes (Web Inspector delegates is one example that comes to mind quickly).

Perhaps more importantly, I don't think that we'd be encouraging blocking main thread while waiting for background thread operation, the whole point of workers is that they work without blocking the main thread.
