The docs seem very clear that only mousedown and mouse up are normalized. Can you confirm?

Yes, mouseup/mousedown do have event.which == 1. It seems like click should be normalized too though. Is there some reason I'm missing for only normalizing mouseup/down?

That data isn't available in IE8. Since the docs are clear, I'll close the ticket.
