Throughout the spec a phrase similar to the following is used (square
brackets indicate link to simple event definition):

"[fire a simple event] that bubbles called change at the element,"

The english is hard to follow and I also suggest that "called" is replaced
with "named" to remove some ambiguity about wether or not it is referring
to "calling" a function:

"fire a [bubbling simple event] named change at the element,"

The definition of the simple event would not need changing to accomodate
the above:

"which does not bubble (unless otherwise stated)"
