Nope, that's as authoritative as it gets.

Yeah the spec right now doesn't do a good job of listing all the event 
handler attributes. I plan to fix that sometime this year. One thing to 
note: they'll all be on all elements, not just the media elements.

For media, there'll be one event handler per event in the summary table in 
the media section.
