I think that might be better as it is more scoped. Since we don't
really understand this space much from a theoretical perspective I
would be hesitant to add generic APIs.

As your document suggests it is unclear what to include. Which also
suggests it does not fall out automatically from some underlying
primitive. Rather, we do this in various places as localized hacks and
there is probably not a generic framework that encompasses them well.

I've been trying to get the people defining UI Events to do this for a
while now without much success.
