Re: [DOMCore] extensions to Event

>> It kind of seems these should be removed from browsers as none of them are  
Eventually, we'd like to remove these once sites no longer use them. I haven't looked recently at usage data for these. Many of these were aspects from IE's legacy event model. I suspect Gecko/Webkit added them in order to improve compatibility.

>> Does anyone think DOM Core should add any of these?
No. They're proprietary extensions that are either not useful or duplicate functionality in the standards model.
