So reading this thread it seems not everyone is on the same page as to
whether all events (including synthetic), or just some will go
cross-boundary. Ian and I thus far have been discussing a model where
all events would go across boundaries.

What would also be useful to know for the new dispatch design is what
exactly the Shadow DOM is going to do. Will there be an Event object
per "tree" or one Event object for the interleaved tree? (I guess both
designs can be made to work. Shadow DOM will just have to set event
parent/cross-boundary event parent as appropriate.)

And finally, how should I deal with the 'load' exception for Window?
If this object is the event parent of a Document and the event type is
load, do nothing?
