It seems much better than changing the semantics of addEventListener().  
That certain on* attributes have special behavior is established. That  
addEventListener() has that too, is not. It makes sense to add some  
special handling to certain on* attributes as they are for convenience.  
addEventListener() however, is not, and I would much rather keep it the  
way it is now.
