Implicit Events ( views without handler events ) do not have LifeCycle events like PreHandler
If you have a view, without a handler event, its considered an Implicit/Virtual Event, and pre, post, and aroundHandler, ie - life cycle events, do not execute.
I think it would be useful, especially for legacy style conversions where you migrate the views, and then refactor into the handler in time.
Maybe activate in handler based on a flag, so the lifecycler isn't added to every Implicit Event if the Handler doesn't need it to.
The big usage benefits would be for logging, security etc.
This came up in the forums today biting someone. They were using a virtual event and expected their prehandler to still run.
Legacy Security is a big reason... so we'll do it.
