ISSUE-177: WheelEvent deltaX/deltaY/deltaZ

float wheel deltas

WheelEvent deltaX/deltaY/deltaZ

HISTORICAL: DOM3 Events [All Bugs and Issues use Bugzilla:]
Raised by:
Jacob Rossi
Opened on:
WheelEvent uses long for delta values. However, it's very possible implementations will need to return fractional values--particularly when returning in units of lines or pages. High resolution scroll mice might even make fractional values possible for pixel units as well.
