It now appears that my question wasn't needed, since WebApps already
answered this same question early in the year while publishing Web
Storage as a W3C Recommendation. As such, it was already asserted that
section 5 of DOM Events is stable and the Director already agreed with
the assertion by publishing Web Storage as a W3C Recommendation.

At this time, I don't believe that a follow-up on this subject is
needed.
