In general I dislike the way my comment is addressed. I'd prefer
direct reply to my email rather than this out-of-band response with
tons of unneeded boilerplate I have to weed through.

That's not actually allowed per the Process. I formally object to this.

This is also not factually correct. I formally object to this too.

Given that this is not implemented by browser vendors I somewhat doubt
it'll survive as such.

The part of my comment about handleEvent being obsolete is already
addressed by Web IDL which is a Candidate Recommendation last I
checked and there's nothing newer or older that you can reference for
them. It'd be great if you'd not just dismiss comments but actually
invest some time in understanding them.
