I’m OK with leaving the event/evt stuff a bit looser than what was
discussed in the thread with Krzysztof, though I am slightly concerned
that <handler>s are treated a little differently from event attributes.

One thing out of that thread that I do think should be included is
wording to prevent things like:

      alert("this won't run");
    function(evt) {
      alert("but this will");

from working.

As for the scope chain removal, I sent a mail a while back returning to
that issue:


I found that we probably should keep that scope chain wording in there,
for consistency with events in HTML.
