Any event can be targetted at any EventTarget; I don't really understand 
what it means for the DOM Events spec to define what targets are valid. 
Unless we are going to actually define the precise rules for how user 
interaction events are fired (which we should), it doesn't seem to make 
sense to list things like whether an event bubbles or what its default 
action is or whatnot.
