Does this list really make sense? A lot of these events are in certain  
scenarios also dispatched to other objects and may also implement  
different interfaces. This is true e.g. for load, error, abort, etc.  
(Consider XMLHttpRequest, HTML media elements, HTML img element, etc.)

I guess this table makes the most sense for where DOM3 Events defines how  
they are dispatched, but even then another specification could use the  
same event type in a different context for a different purpose. That  
should be made clear somehow.
