defaultView, multiple stylesheets etc. are not DOM 0 or at all
interopable, so I do not accept that Web apps  is at all reflecting
the current behaviour.

Nope, I realise you don't do much scripting, but one of the things you
normally do with events in layout environments, is retrieve the
element you get back, then check it's size, or position - to do that
you need the computed CSS values - so you need to be accessing the
defaultView, if you're not accessing the defaultView of the element
that fired the event, you can't do anything!
