6.4 For scripts and applets, ensure that event handlers are input
device-independent. [Priority 2]
9.3 For scripts, specify logical event handlers rather than device-dependent
event handlers. [Priority 2]
Looks to me like just a little bit of redundancy. Aside from the presence or
absence of the word "applets," these two checkpoints are saying essentially
the same thing.
