This is to address the issues here:
   http://www.whatwg.org/issues/#seamless-events

Basically I'd like a way to be able to, from the HTML spec, set up event
retargetting so that I don't have to monkeypatch the DOM event dispatch model,
I just need to invoke some hooks and get the effect described in the e-mails
above. No need for DOM Core to know about Window, <iframe>, or MouseEvents,
just define a way to configure the dispatch tree, and a "spec callback" that is
invoked when events are to be cloned, to set up the events' attributes and to
determine if the events should be retargetted or something.

Ideally this would be specced in such a way that it could also be used for Web
components when the dispatching for those is defined.
