Given that Gecko does not follow links for synthetic click events dispatched on
<a> I am skeptical it is an exception. Or needs to be one anyway.

(The language in DOM Level 3 Events is just confusing this issue in my opinion.
It does not need to say anything here. This is up to specifications that define
form submission and following links.)
