Here is my action item for technique 3.1.2(20), on using 
device-independent handlers:

(a) During applet development, the author can be prompted to include 
device-independent means of activation.
---new---
(b) The tool can prompt authors to use device-independent events (e.g., 
DOM 2 onactivate) instead of device-specific events (e.g., onclick), or 
route multiple events (onclick and onkeypress) through the same functions.
(c) The tool can prompt authors to add a DOM onfocus event to elements 
that are targeted with the onmouseover event.
(d) (Hmm. Should something be said about ondblclick?)
---end new---

There is another technique that belongs in the document, though not here:
- The tool can prompt and assist the user to use JavaScript events in 
favor of links with the javascript: namespace.
