Since the IDL attributes just reflect the content attributes, I don't know
how that could be separated.
The main reason I didn't put them on Element rather than HTMLElement is
that I didn't expect other vocabularies would appreciate it. My ideal
solution would be for all event handlers for all elements supported by a
browser to be supported on all Element, Node, and Window objects, but
that might be a bit far.
