Eventually, we'd like to remove these once sites no longer use them. I haven't looked recently at usage data for these. Many of these were aspects from IE's legacy event model. I suspect Gecko/Webkit added them in order to improve compatibility.

>> Does anyone think DOM Core should add any of these?
No. They're proprietary extensions that are either not useful or duplicate functionality in the standards model.

I filed these bugs on WebKit and Gecko:

   https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=65283
   https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=674696

Opera already has a bug on this.
