Ticket #9316 (closed feature: wontfix)
Make .delegate(null, 'type', fnHandler) behave like .bind('type', fnHandler)

Description (last modified by rwaldron) (diff)
There are circumstances where it would be incredibly handy if jQuery.fn.delegate would handle the special case of an empty/falsy selector parameter, and interpret it as a direct .bind() request on the collection.
The current behavior in jQuery happens to be almost like that, except that when the collection object is missing a selector property things start failing. I suspect there's some sort of a fallback on .live() going on - and causing those unpredictable results.
Adding this as a feature shouldn't add too much bloat to the core library, and would IMHO adhere to the principle of least surprise.
