Re: [DOM3Events] defaultPrevented and preventDefault() conflict

This seems to match the WebKit behavior as well.

Test case I used to verify:
<input id=foo>
var foo = document.getElementById('foo');
foo.addEventListener('click', function(e)
foo.addEventListener('blur', function(e)

This approach makes more sense to me since it gives more information to web
