[UIEvents] Keydown/keyup events during composition

Hi all,

This is another feedback from multiple browser vendors (Apple, Google, Microsoft) that got together in Redmond last Thursday to discuss editing API and related events.

We've been informed that Gecko/Firefox does not fire keydown/keyup events during input method composition for each key stroke.  Could someone from Mozilla clarify why this is desirable behavior?

We think it's better to fire keydown/keyup events for consistency across browsers.  If anything authors can detect that a given keydown/keyup event is associated with input methods by listening to composition events as well.
