Hi, Garrett-

Thanks for your comments.  I was specifically asking for review of the 
wording for the mouseover, mouseout, mouseenter, and mouseleave events, 
so other comments should go on a different thread (thus the change in 
subject line).

Okay, I'll take this under advisement.

Noted.

It's marked at risk.  I want to get wider feedback from reviews of the 
public Working Draft before I actually remove the text.  This spec has 
been available as a W3C Note for over 7 years, so I want to make sure we 
aren't tripping anyone up too much.
