           Summary: Additional attributes should be wired up to window
                    when on body
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified

            Status: NEW

The spec says: "Note: The attributes marked with an asterisk have a different
meaning when specified on body elements as those elements expose event handlers
of the Window object with the same names."

The following attributes are asterisked: onblur, onerror, onfocus, onload.

For improved interop with other browsers we would like the list to be defined
as follows:

* onmouseup, 
* onmousemove, 
* onmouseover 
* onmouseout
* onclick
* onkeyup
* onkeypress
* onkeydown
* on[before][de]activate
* oncontextmenu
* ondblclick
* focusin
* focusout
* onmouseenter
* onmouseleave
* onmousewheel
* on[before]copy
