The docs say: "This particular method triggers all bound event handlers on an element (for a specific event type) WITHOUT executing the browser's default actions nor bubbling."

Isn't bubbling needed for .live() to work?

I was never quite sure of the design goals or use cases for

though. The limit of triggering only for the first element in the jQuery object is unusual as well.
