FWIW i'm fine with keeping things the way they are. Though there is 
definitely a risk that other vendors will "have to" implement the 
LSProgressEvent interface as well in order to support content out there 
that is written for firefox. But we're talking about two extra 
properties whose implementation will basically just be to forward to 
another property so I doubt that it's a big burden.
