           Summary: Investigate if onfoo properties should be handled in a

In bugs https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=691059 and
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=684671
we had to change prototype handling so that
Document.prototype.onreadystatechange and
HTMLElement.prototype.onmouseenter/leave don't throw when setting.

Hopefully those are just special cases which we can remove at some point.
But if we're not lucky, we may need to special case all the onfoo properties.

IE9 seems to behave like Gecko used to, which is why
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=691059 happens also in IE9 when
the test page is forced to load in IE9 mode.
