Yeah.

Note that the HTML spec defines BeforeUnloadEvent.returnValue explicitly, 
since it apparently is needed for beforeunload; it doesn't assume that 
returnValue is available everywhere. If we add returnValue, or if 
BeforeUnloadEvent.returnValue should not exist, please let me know so I 
can update HTML.
