Accessible event pairs

As you may have noticed I haven't yet presented a revision of the WCAG
JavaScript document, as I'd promised about two weeks ago. I was far
busier than I expected.

Nonetheless I have done some research into accessible event pairs,
which is now available at


    *  mouseover: pair with focus
    * mouseout: pair with blur
    * click: pairing not necessary
    * dblclick: don't know
    * mousedown: keydown is the least bad option
    * mouseup: keyup is the least bad option
    * mousemove: impossible to emulate without a mouse

I feel these conclusions, or other conclusions based on similar
research, should end up in a WCAG JavaScript document.
