The following bool-returning methods on Event should be readonly  
attributes instead:

   // Introduced in DOM Level 3:
   boolean            isCustom();
   // Introduced in DOM Level 3:
   boolean            isDefaultPrevented();

Since these methods take no parameters and are side-effect free, they  
should be readonly attributes instead.

Regards,
Maciej
