The way it is defined now is that events have a set of concepts associated  
with them and the object members return those. E.g. .bubbles "internally"  
is the bubble flag. It does not make sense if the event dictionary would  
refer directly to the properties. I suppose we could revamp the way events  
are defined though, but I am not sure how.
