Hi, folks-

In DOM3 Events, Event.type attribute is currently defined to be 
case-sensitive, while it was case-insensitive in DOM2 Events.

My questions:

* what are the rationales for making it case-sensitive?
* what do implementations currently do?
* is it more author-friendly to make/leave it case-insensitive?
* if it is made case-insensitive, should it be normalized in the DOM for 
easier comparison and interop?

Regards-
