Hi Aaron,

Spec ready solutions are now available for both of these issues in the editor's
draft. [1] (9.3.3 Repeat Processing and 9.3.6 The itemset Element)

35) We clarified in a note that all template content (including actions) are
unavailable to the host language processor.  So handlers declared within a
repeat do not handle elements dispatched to the repeat (and likewise for
itemset).  Actions declared within a repeat template operate over the repeated
content (e.g. the item elements generated by an itemset).

36) The actions within an itemset *are* applicable to each item generated.  The
sentence claiming that actions in the itemset don't handle events on
the itemset has been changed to simply state that, as with repeat, handlers
within itemset do not handle events on the itemset.

This is necessary to prevent a double run of event handlers as events bubble up
from generated content to the generating repeat or itemset.

An example of how to handle events dispatched to a repeat or itemset was added.
