Sorry, I meant EventHandler [1], I was confused by the naming in WebKit.

Here are a few example of interfaces using EventTarget / EventHandler:

- https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/IndexedDB/raw-file/default/Overview.html#idl-def-IDBRequest
- http://dev.w3.org/html5/workers/#workerglobalscope
- https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/dap/raw-file/tip/battery/Overview.html#idl-def-BatteryManager

Subject: Re: [ResourceTiming] onresourcetimingbufferfull attribute type

I don't recall any reason for why we chose Function and not EventListener. Christophe, could you point me to a spec that uses EventListener?

I was hoping someone else would chime in with a reason. If there isn't one, we should just use EventListener like everywhere else.

According to the latest editor draft [1] of the Resource Timing API, the Performance.onresourcetimingbufferfull attribute should be of type 'Function'. Other DOM objects seem to use the 'EventListener' type (and inherit EventTarget) for similar purposes.

Is there any reason why onresourcetimingbufferfull is not an EventListener and why the Performance does not inherit EventTarget?
