My comment was based upon the fact that the 'detail' attribute of
MouseEvent from DOM Level 2 [1] "indicates the number of times a mouse
button has been pressed and released over the same screen location
during a user action".  As such, this attribute cannot be used by any
event that inherits from MouseEvent.

Please let us know, within the week, whether this addresses your concern
about the wheelDelta attribute.
