What objects should these be exposed on? In previous discussions, if I
recall correctly, arguments were made for ~"the spec states the event is
dispatched to the document"~ but also e.g. webkit's implementation of
fullscreen bubbles from the target element, so perhaps you sould be able to
listen on everything. In the webkit pointer lock implementation events go
only to the document.

I suggest we expose the properties only on document, unless someone can
communicate the value of also including them on other elements.

I'm confused why HTML should include the properties, and not the respective
specifications.
