Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: Since you can't register capturing handlers declaratively, and since
form controls can be all over the place in the DOM now, I think 'forminput' and
'formchange' are still very helpful and have clear use cases. As as
straightforward demonstration of this, try to rewrite the examples in the spec
that use these features to do them without onforminput/onformchange and see
whether it's still as simple.
