mouseover and mouseout indeed work very well in ASV6.

It seems that mouseover should be translated to focusin, according to 
this sentence of the DOM Level 2 spec, section 1.6.1

"The DOMFocusIn event occurs when an |EventTarget| receives focus, for 
instance _via a pointing device being moved onto an element_ or by 
tabbing navigation to the element."

Then if I understand correctly, ASV6 generates the mouseover, but does 
not do the mouseover-to-focusin translation, whereas ASV3 does.
According to Chris' tests, other players agree with ASV6.
I am tempted to conclude, but will refrain from it :)
Best regards
