> We're removing init* methods from all specs and using constructors. So, I think this specific aspect is controversial. We should only implement this if we are required to for web compat, otherwise we should try to get the spec updated.

I mentioned here <https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=68791#c14> that casual searching with Code Search indicated that initWheelEvent is used a lot. However we’re in an interesting place, since it obviously isn’t used in WebKit!

So if the question is one of browser parity compat, I think it makes sense to implement initWheelEvent. (I’m assuming other browsers implement the spec, though.) If the question is about not breaking existing web content, not implementing initWheelEvent makes sense.

In either case we should implement the DOM4 Events-style WheelEvent constructor.
