> all those can be trivially handled without these additional events

What does your definition of 'trivially handled' encompass?  Here's the amount
of JavaScript required in the spec examples purely in terms of character counts
(not including spaces):

calculator: 67 characters
password validity: 37 characters
car price: 15 characters

Plus, slightly more meta, understanding of event bubbling required: false.

With your examples:

calculator: 200 characters
password validity: 185 characters
car price: 116 characters

Understanding event bubbling required: true.

I don't agree that you can so easily characterize a minimum of 300% more code
and the requirement to understand event bubbling as trivial.

> I do think forminput and formchange are not needed

As I previously asked, why is this not needed, but valueAsNumber is?
