 Description  « Hide

During the specification process, we stripped out the ability to extend the
javascript event payload.

This is a problem, as any changes to that payload would then be incompatible
with the spec, and prevent further expansions of that payload in future specs.

One simple proposal would be to allow implementations to simply prefix the name
of any property they add with "x".
