Event target of mouse and drag-detected events

I am handling mouse and drag-detected events on a vbox to get a common 
processing of the vbox children. Therefore event.source is always the 
vbox (that is ok) but event.target is quite often some part of a skin, e.g.


To get to the actual label control I am currently checking the parent 
chain to find a Skinnable parent node, or the vbox container. If a 
Skinnable was found this is the "real target". If I get to the vbox 
first, I assume that event.target is what I want to use here.

This is not too complicated to do but I was wondering if this is the 
best way?
