[whatwg] Web Forms: change event

I have a question about the change event.

The specs say that for <select> "...the change event shall be fired when 
the selection is completed...". Does this mean that, when using a 
keyboard for navigation, the change event is fired when the user hits 
'enter' or when she navigates from one option to another? I assume it's 
the former, but I just to be sure as selectboxes with change event 
handlers are often (ab)used for navigation purposes. So, can anyone 
confirm my assumption?
