I hadn't yet gotten around to modifying the section of the spec on 
activation behavior [1].  I have now done so, and did indeed clarify the 
relationship of 'click' and 'DOMActivate' events as default actions. 
Please let me know if the new wording works for you, or if you find 
someplace else that 'DOMActivate' is lurking.

Not necessarily.  However, I got several requests to add it [2], and it 
is a useful distinction to make, so I added it.  I can see a possible 
use case for authors in mixed-source documents (mashups, etc.).

I'm not wholly satisfied with the definition, myself, so I am open to

Based on telcon feedback from Mozilla and Microsoft, I reverted back to 
the previous initialization behavior.  So, this is no longer relevant, 
though you can read a previous draft where I'd changed it, if you are 
still interested.
