ISSUE-122 (add mousewheel): Consider adding 'mousewheel' again [DOM3 Events]

http://www.w3.org/2008/webapps/track/issues/122

Raised by: Doug Schepers
On product: DOM3 Events

Defining the 'mousewheel' event and interface was an early decision by the group, and this was specified along with the 'wheel' event and interface, and a detailed description of the interactions between the two.  

'mousewheel' was later dropped based on feedback from implementers (Mozilla, Microsoft), who expressed a reluctance to implement 'mousewheel', and a lack of useful interoperability and concern that any change to improve interop would likely break a number of sites.

However, the group may wish to consider adding it again, see:
