Jonas discovered the relevant text, 1.2.2 has "A capturing EventListener
will not be triggered by events dispatched directly to the EventTarget
upon which it is registered." And Maciej found dispatchEvent09 in the
DOM Level 2 Events test suite that tests for this. So the question is
now whether we want to change this.
