It would also be great if for the interfaces that are newly introduced we  
do not introduce a init*Event method. CompositionEvent, TextEvent,  
WheelEvent, can probably have it removed. UIEvent, MouseEvent, and  
KeyboardEvent should probably carry a note about their init*Event methods  
being strongly discouraged, as we cannot really remove those I think.
