Testing Progress Events and CR

Since this relates to the CR of Progress Events I thought I would bring it  
up on this list instead of one of the testing mailing lists. Progress  
Events depends a lot on other specifications. Basically the only thing  
that can be tested is creating synthetic events and seeing whether the  
interface is correct. And synthetic events is an aspect that might need  
changing given the new way of creating them we are going to introduce in  
DOM Core.

So a) maybe we should hold off on going to CR until the new way of  
initializing events is settled in DOM Core and b) we should probably  
modify the CR exit criteria somewhat to make clear what we expect to be  
able to test. Progress Events can be more fully tested in the context of  
another specification, e.g. the File API or XMLHttpRequest.
