But HTML5 mentions onfullscreenchange/onfullscreenerror.  Right now it 
only puts it on window/body/frameset, but not on document or any other 
node.  See https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=20637 that I 
filed earlier today.

Mozilla currently puts these properties on all HTML elements and on 
Document and Window, for what it's worth.
