It still requires DOMActivate to be fired, though. We'd like to remove it  
completely in Opera, and thus also remove the requirement that it be fired  
in the spec (or remove it completely from the spec).

Does trusted need to be exposed to Web authors? Or is the concept enough  
for other specs to hock onto? I don't see a 'trusted' property on events  
in Opera, Firefox or WebKit.

Could you expand on this?
