I may not completely understand Andrew's argument, but I think the big 
counter argument is that most other frameworks already support these 
events. And with 10 lines extra for mouseenter/mouseleave and 20 lines 
extra for mousewheel, I'm not seeing the slippery slope to bloated code. 
Furthermore, it seems that browsers are slowly converging on standards 
compliance (although mouseenter/mouseleave has not been proposed as a 
standard afaik) which will eventually simplify or remove the extra code 
for these events.
