Pretty sure this needs a hook in DOM4 (DOM Level 3 Events is wrong in that they
are nothing special).


Using both addEventListener and on* you can register the same listener twice.
And you cannot remove the listener added with addEventListener by setting on*
to null, etc.

I think event listener needs an additional "event handler flag".

When you set on* it first removes any event listeners for type=type,
listener=listener, event handler flag set, then it appends a new event listener
for type=type, listener=listener, with the event handler flag set.

addEventListener meanwhile never has the event handler flag set and when doing
equality checking it always checks for unset.
