Really? How would it work in a sane way with mouseenter/leave which behavior
is largely about non-bubbling.

Or perhaps you don't meant normal bubbling but you mean that if there is
this kind of special event listener in an ancestor, such listener should be
called even is the event doesn't bubble.
(Such would sound very much like what happens with XBL1+non-bubbling events)
