This was discussed on the webapps list I believe. We should try to include
EventTarget in the prototype chain on all objects that are event targets. This
way people can modify the EventTarget prototype object to add API to all event
targets.

A similar modification was done in the DOM Core spec where Node now inherits
EventTarget and in the XHR spec where XHR now inherits EventTarget.
