Hopefully such clarifications in the XHTML2 spec will not conflict with
requirements of event propagation in the DOM specs. In particular,
implementations that are not XHTML-specific implementations but generic
XML+DOM+CSS UAs, using UA stylesheets and scripting bound through UA
stylesheets (using technologies like XBL or HTCs) should hopefully end up
automatically complying to the XHTML specs.
