I propose the following changes to Provision 1 of Checkpoint 1.2 to limit 
the range of event handlers to those that can be activated through the user 

"Allow the user to activate, through keyboard input alone, all event 
handlers that are explicitly associated with the element designated by the 
content focus. "

"All event handlers that can be triggered through user input devices (i.e. 
onMouseOver, onMouseOut, onFocus, onBlur... ) must include at least one 
activation method through the keyboard."
