There is no contradiction. The quoted text refers to the value of these
attributes after an event object has been created using `.createEvent`.
Whether any event defined by this Working Group bubbles has do be de-
fined by the Working Group. If the target of the event is the Window
object, it should use the dominant bubbling behavior for events that're
also targeted at the Window object, unless there are good reasons to do
otherwise.
