    Why is the "capturing" phase so named?

      I believe I've got a reasonable understanding of the Flex event flow but I don't understand why the capturing phase is so named. Perhaps it is so named because during the capturing phase an event can be stopped--captured--before it reaches its target, but I'd love to hear the origin of the term from somebody who knows.
