Subject: [FOR REVIEW] Note to implementers for MouseEvent

During the call on Monday [1] we agreed to add a note to the MouseEvent section of Hit Regions that draws attention to the approach we are taking and how it differs from WHAT WG in an effort to get feedback from implementers on this method.  I propose the following text:

<span class="issue">This approach simplifies event handling by not <a href="http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/the-canvas-element.html#dom-mouseevent-region">re-targeting
the event</a>.  The event is dispatched as normal once the event.region attribute is initialized to the active hit region's ID.  The event is received by the canvas element allowing the author to define the behavior of the event.</span>
