We aren't adding property-bag passing.  We're considering allowing 
attributes to be writable between the time the event is created and when 
it is dispatched.  We would keep the existing initialization methods, 
for back-compat (though we are weighing the costs and benefits of not 
adding new ones for the new interfaces).

A language for which this is a problem would not have to allow the 
attributes to be writable.  It could continue to use the initialization 

Is this a problem for Java?
