Chapter "18.104.22.168. Events and the Window object"  says that event is
also dispatched to window before (and after) dispatching to DOM
nodes. I'd rather say window object is part of the event target chain
(unfortunately load event is a special case), so events automatically
propagate from document to window. No need to re-dispatch anything.
(This is how gecko works ;) )
Or perhaps that is what the text is trying to say, but it should
probably talk about event propagation, not about dispatching to window.
