Hi Chris,

I'm curious what elements the UIRequestEvents apply to.  Does it fire at the
document level or does it fire for specific elements like textareas?  The
addition of undo/redo is similar to the proposal to add this to the
textInput event.  There was some discussion of that here:

<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-dom/2010AprJun/0082.html>Ojan also
proposed renaming the textInput event to just beforeInput because it seems
like it can apply to more than just text (e.g., undo'ing the insertion of an
image).  Do you think the use of textInput/beforeInput would meet the use
cases needed by UIRequestEvent?
