Don't call Element remove for custom remove event

If you fire a custom event called "remove" HTMLElement.prototype.remove gets called which removes the DOM element.

You should probably use a whitelist (click, focus, blur etc) instead of checking for the presence of the property.

It's documented that firing an event on an element calls its same-named method, and that .triggerHandler doesn't call it. If you're truly firing a *custom* event and don't want DOM semantics it shouldn't use a DOM method name.
