This came up in a discussion on public-webapi on whether or not DOM Level
3 Events should just take the trusted attribute and put it on the Event
interface.

It seems relevant for XBL2 as well.

I agree that in general this is needed by the UA, yeah.  Mozilla XBL will
need
it because there are widgets implemented by UA-provided XBL that hang out
in web
pages at times; those widgets want to tell apart trusted and untrusted
events.
Whether general XBL widgets will want to do so is an interesting question,
since
generally speaking untrusted XBL widgets won't be able to _create_ such
events...
