Hi folks,

This thread hasn't been touched in a while. As Olli points out, cancelBubble and srcElement are just a few properties from the legacy IE event model which other browsers implement for interoperability (others include fromElement, toElement, which, etc.). These properties don't provide additional functionality to DOM3 Events. It is not a goal to document all proprietary event APIs. Therefore, I have rejected this issue. Let me know if you disagree.

Thanks,

Jacob
