I'm perfectly fine with that if you guys a) think it's not worth
delaying the spec b) already plan to think about it for next level.
I only thought it was worth commenting about that and pointing out
that we may need such events in the near future.

If you mean a spec about CSS Events hosted by your WG, yes. A spec
hosted by CSS WG, I don't think so: I'd rather leave DOM (if you
except the CSS Object Model) outside of CSS WG's scope. If you guys
starts a CSS Events spec, be sure we will contribute and help, no

Yeah I think it makes sense. I mean if implementors are going to
implement such events in the near future, well...
