I tried doing that as part of bug 675579 but that breaks a lot of tests and might have web compat risk.

I looked and it seems to me like WebKit/Blink agree on our behavior.
1. I do not see how this is meant to help bug 675579 - or that it needs help to begin with.
2. I think that making the input event asynchronous would be a very real backward compatibility risk.

So, IMHO, don't do this.

It shouldn't affect that bug.

I agree.  Do you think it's worth proposing the spec to be fixed here?  I chatted with Hixie about this on IRC briefly but we didn't get to a conclusion.
I did not realize the spec says it is supposed to be asynch. If there is lack of interop, it's always worth discussing it. But I don't know enough about it to participate actively.
