As discussed in the jquery-dev list on the topic:

I believe that the overhead is minimal in the proposed attached patch.

I've made a test case and also an unit test proposal.

The solution does not seem to work if the element uses .live() handler and parent using regular .click() handler. Try the following test case.

        // in testD <a> is bound without live
            $('#testD li').click(function(event){
                    ($(this).css('background-color')==='rgb(255, 192, 203)'?'red':'rgb(255, 192, 203)')
            $('#testD a').live("click", function(event){
                    ($(this).css('background-color')==='rgb(255, 255, 255)'?'silver':'rgb(255, 255, 255)')
                return false;
