Well, first thing I think is that we make sure everything still internally works in the framework.
At some point though we will likely need to document this and bit the bullet.

As someone who has been intimate with the framework for years I can guarantee you that the
order of events in something like combobox has basically changed every other versions since
flex 2, so we have precedent :)
