If you want to do bubbling with Signals, then read this post first:

You can do it, it's just not automatic.

They look like fun and I'm looking forward to it. Just "getting acquainted" 
with them now before I jump in bed with them lol. I did the dispatchEvent + 
getter dance with three similar problems. One forced me to go 2 classes down 
and I couldn't figure how to bubble through it, so it became cumbersome. Then I 
was trying to figure out how to use them in my (now) infinitely nested 
drop-down menu so that I could control when the whole 
branch-upon-branch-upon-branch structure should disappear onRollOut from 
*everything* but *not* to the next branch or previous one, etc. What a freaking 
mess that would be with dispatchEvent + getter! Not even the quadrille could 
compare lol. Googled for bubbling events and violá! as3-signals to the rescue ;)
