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.
