Ariel, it doesn't look like its a typo. To make it more clear:
<div><span><a href="#">test link</a></span></div>
alert('current: '+ this.nodeName +', target: '+ e.target.nodeName);
So this is about event bubbling for custom events, which isn't implemented. I agree with Brandon that a plugin implementation would be helpful for a start.
