He he. :)

As it happens, we did come up with a way that we could retain the use
of prefixed names, even if they weren't supported at the DOM level;
after all, there is no reason that the XML Events spec has to
faithfully pass all values through to the events API, unaltered.

But in the end we thought it was best to keep it simple, at least
until the direction the DOM was taking was clearer.

All the best,

Mark
