You sure that will fail?  I am pretty sure the "static" event methods
should all work with a regular event object.

Isn't it just for convenience, like the Element methods that they put
the method in as a property just for the syntactic sweetness?

Also I agree with Mislav, inline event handling is horrible practice.
Gather your elements and apply listeners, similar to how you avoid
inline markup because of CSS, now you can avoid inline markup for
javascript behavior because of prototype.  I find myself using the
same selectors in these two technologies constantly and i'll tell you,
when you come back to it a few months later you'll be happy.
