I should add that as the wheelDelta attribute is read-only, it is not
possible to create such an event using the DOM Level 3 createEvent
method as the initUIEventNS method will only initialize the detail
member and not the wheelDelta one, unless the event object implements
additional interfaces in environments that support createEvent.
