describes a key event order as follows:

  # 1. keydown
  # 2. keypress (only for keys which produce a character value)
  # 3. If the key is depressed for a sustained period, the following
  #    events may repeat at an environment-dependent rate:
  #        keydown (with repeat attribute set to true)
  #        keypress (with repeat attribute set to true; only for
  #          keys which produce a character value)
  # 4. Any default actions related to this key
  # 5. keyup

It seems, however, that when a key is held down and repeating, there
may be default actions associated with each repetition.  In this
case, I think a mention of default actions should also occur within
the nested list (presumably after keydown and keypress, just like
for non-repeated keypresses).
