What does "changing a tab" mean?  Do you mean pushing some graphical
object with the mouse or replacing one graphical object with another?

Can I transcribe this as "reacting to a tab event means to call a
function written in Elisp"?

Sure.  But any such function could be used in another context as well.
As mentioned before, we could easily add menu- or toolbar items which
stand for "saving the current window configuration" or "restoring a
previously saved window configuration".  I can neither see why such
actions should be exclusively tied to tabs nor why tabs are very suited
for them.
