I did some more testing on this. Synthetic mouse events are limited in that
they cannot trigger some state like hover styles. Other things like
focus/blur require special handling. It's also left to the synthetic event
creator to synthesize compound events like over/out/enter/leave and their
semantic as supplying the primitive mouse events (click, mousemove) doesn't
automatically synthesize the others.
