Obviously nothing that moved to the DOM Standard will have to be
carried over, but it would be of tremendous value to be able to refer
to a single specification for the story on MouseEvent and such.
Especially once I get around to defining e.g. the event dispatch story
for <iframe seamless> you need that kind of infrastructure in place.
(Basically you dispatch an event at an inner Window, and for each
parent Window you create a duplicate of the event object, but with
adjusted coordinates. How exactly those coordinates are adjusted
belongs in the MouseEvent specification.)
