Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: If there are pages that actually break if you implement what the
spec says, then that changes matters. However, I haven't seen any evidence of
this. Pages I looked at that exhibit oninput-like behaviour seem to use
onkeypress, not oninput, since that's what's implemented more widely. (And the
main page I'm thinking of fails to handle paste correctly, which is how I
noticed that it was doing anything like this at all.)

If we don't have a back-compat constraint, then the specced behaviour is
significantly better than requiring UAs to fire oninput after every onkeypress,
because it gives authors a way to do expensive "instant" computation in a way
that doesn't waste CPU resources and in a way that doesn't require complicated
manipulation of timers.
