There is no plan in make a standard out of these Mozilla-specific methods. stopPropagation is what is used by developers (standard and better cross-browser compat)
They have no reason to exist as properties on Event.prototype anymore.
Need to be careful especially with preventBubble. Traditionally it has been used oddly often.

Let's try and see what's going on early in the cycle.
Currently preventBubble is no-op, so any code depending on preventBubble is broken anyway.

We should also consider removing (Bug 691151) or deprecating (Bug 726933) getPreventDefault. The nsIDOMEvent document says it has been deprecated since Gecko 16.0 but the bugs are still open.

I think preventBubble and preventCapture should be explained in a separate clause.
These methods are not derived from Netscape but from the earlier W3C draft.
Chromium have never supported these methods from the start. And the replacement method is stopPropagation.

Thank you for the feedback. I just corrected the document.
