           Summary: Should a canceled drop event signify a failed drop

In "Drag-and-drop processing model", it appears that the determination of
whether the drop succeeded or failed has been decided before the drop event is
fired. Even if the drop event is canceled, this is still considered to be a
successful drop. While it doesn't matter from the web page's point-of-view (if
the drop handler is smart enough to cancel the event, it's also smart enough to
treat the drop as a failure), it does matter for browsers that use feedback to
signify drag failure (such as "snap-back" feedback). Should a canceled drop
event be treated by the browser as a failure or a success?
