ISSUE-155 (textinput): Consider lowercasing 'text'Input' event [DOM3 Events]


Raised by: Doug Schepers

0) I suspect that this has already been debated at length, but does the 
"textInput" event really have to be mixed case?  With the deprecation of 
the various DOM-prefixed event types, won't this be the only mixed-case 
event type?  Assuming that browsers expose this event with an "on" 
handler property, JavaScript programmers are going to be confused when 
typing "ontextInput" and will end up doing "onTextInput".  If a 
single-case name is good enough for genuinely hard-to-read things like 
"compositionend", it should be fine to use "textinput" for this event!
