All other specifications that define EventTargets are putting them on the
prototype chain. DOM Core[1], indexedDB[2], and XHR[3] already does this.

Further, it actually makes it possible to extend the EventTarget interface
which is a good thing (for example it lets people implement the "enumerate all
registered listener API which is asked for every now and then by overriding


We're planning on making the same change to other interfaces, like FileReader
and WebSocket in Firefox.
