This is a similar inconsistency as load event handling
(doesn't propagate from Document to Window); each documentation 
describing the generic onfoo handling needs to say that in one special
case onfoo does something else than usually, like each documentation describing
event propagation needs to special case load event.

I tried to fix load event handling five years ago, but that broke way too
many web sites. In this case the spec breaks consistency without no reason - 
let's not do that.
