Thank you for this very enlightning answer. Some more quick questions:

What is the name of this feature in DOM 3 Events?

So if I understood correctly, the handlerGroup is a place holder to put 
all the event listeners and yet-to-come dispatchers that are part of the 
interface of the binding. You put there the behavioral part of the 
binding that will receive/emit events from/to the bound element. Events 
handling elements that deal with internal events should be put in the 
template element. Is that right?
