Sorry, Sergey. Still don't understand what you mean.
The issue is about*to do**mention* "awt.mouse.numButtons".
Now you are saying that there is no value to mention it for the first 
time in this spec. Doesn't it contradict to the request itself?
You couldn't be more specific on what do you want, could you?
The fix just adds one short statement to the spec.  Maybe you'll find it 
to be more productive to just rephrase as you want and write here.

Thank you!
