What do you mean by "backwards X-browser support"?

Just like I said, IE (including v. 6) supports `attachEvent` which
*does* pass event object as a first argument to event listener. If you
use `attachEvent` (or, more likely, `observe`) you don't need to touch
`window.event`. It is intrinsic event handler that doesn't pass event
as a first argument.

So, to reiterate, you do not need `bindAsEventListener` when using
`observe` and not partially applying event listener : )
