There are no hard and fast rules for what to require or recommend at
a specific point in the process. For the specific issue, the method
stopImmediatePropagation would be meaningless if we don't define the
relative order of listeners in the relevant event group and needs to
be removed if we don't define the order. So if you think we should
not define ordering, I'd rather hear why the downsides of defining
the order outweight the cited benefits and how similar effects can
be achieved e.g. in XBL2 where stopImmediatePropagation seems to be
pretty much required. In a new thread, ideally.
