Hi Travis - I'm sorry, you didn't miss an official announcement. We sent a Call
for Objections to the PF list on 27 June 2012:

https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/w3c-wai-pf/2012AprJun/0212.html

No objections were sent, e.g., see 

https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/w3c-wai-pf/2012AprJun/

We didn't record a formal resolution in a meeting, but we worked up a formal
response in the 27 June 2012 PF meeting (which had low quorum so we didn't
record a resolution):

https://www.w3.org/2012/06/27-pf-minutes.html

"In the years since this bug was filed, our view of how to provide
accessibility to Web Applications has evolved. The new IndieUI work is expected
to meet the user requirements albeit in a different manner than originally
proposed in this bug. Requirements that IndieUI would not meet are ones that we
no longer believe need to be met. Therefore we now believe there is nothing
needed in DOM Level 3 Events. We appreciated your thoroughness in checking this
with us and it has helped to clarify our position on accessibility events. You
can close this bug without further action."

Based on all the above, you can consider this issue closed from our
perspective. I'm copying the PF list and the wai-liaison list to archive this.
