Right, this issue was raised because there is at least one implementation  
that does not do what the specification currently states. That an issue is  
being raised does not mean there is consensus within the group to actually  
change the behavior that is specified. It just means that we should  
probably look into it given that it's a valid issue.

Personally I'm also in favor of keeping the behavior specified on DOM  
Level 2 Events. Making it a bit clearer in DOM Level 3 Events can't hurt I  
guess given that it has apparently caused some confusion with implementors.
