So the reason for our implementation was around the expected behavior for click interactions with buttons. If you click without releasing on an intractable element (e.g. button, anchors,etc), then drag off and release, the button does not trigger a click event. We can obviously special case for the literal &lt;button&gt;, elements, but we get into weird behavior when you are dealing with sites that have created their own links/buttons via divsoup
