Comment:
The Section "Global attributes", 
http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/global-attributes.html#global-attributes 
contains:

"The following event handler content attributes may be specified on any HTML
element:"


and then a list of event handler attribute names.


BUT, I cannot find any place in the RFC where these events are defined! Some
are clear (onclick), but others are ambiguous or mysterious (what causes an
onabort or oncancel event?)

It would be nice / useful to have a place (maybe in the doc, maybe a link)
where all these events are briefly defined, in order to distinguish the more
esoteric / ambiguous events.

Thank you.
