[progress-events] default action suggestion

  Hi Anne, All,

The latest ED of the Progress Events spec says:


Throughout the web platform the |error|, |abort|, and |load| event types 
have traditionally not had a default action and did not bubble so it is 
suggested that for consistency all event types using the |ProgressEvent| 
interface do not bubble and are not cancelable.

The rationale for that recommendation seems reasonable so I'm wondering 
if, for interop reasons, this text should be prescriptive, as implied in 
the following; or if this text should be marked as non-normative:


* Event types are now suggestions rather than normative. Specifications
will have to make the final call.
