The spec says: "This triggers a sequence of events dependent on the activation
mechanism, and normally culminating in a click event followed by a DOMActivate
event, as described below."

Firing DOMActivate should be a MAY requirement because it is deprecated in DOM
L3 Events.

See http://www.w3.org/TR/DOM-Level-3-Events/#event-type-DOMActivate, which
says:

"The DOMActivate event type is defined in this specification for reference and
completeness, but this specification deprecates the use of this event type in
favor of the related event type click. Other specifications may define and
maintain their own DOMActivate event type for backwards compatibility."
