It is a UI Event, so we believed it would be better placed there; the 
implementation difference it trivial, and we didn't think moving it 
would negatively affect legacy content.  If you have evidence otherwise, 
and the group agrees that's better, I could move it back to the basic 
Event interface.

Simon Pieters indicated that it does not bubble [1], and testing seemed 
to bear that out.

Is this a special case for the scroll event on the Document object? 
Could you share your tests with us?
