FWIW, introducing new init*Event() methods at this stage is not really  
acceptable, no matter what the dependency is. And not defining an event  
constructor as per DOM also seems questionable, but that is at least  
something you could fix in the future.

Also, you already depend on HTML, which depends on the latest DOM, so it  
seems really weird to then also depend on some really crappy out of date  
draft.


Unrelated, the IDL in  
http://dev.w3.org/geo/api/spec-source-orientation.html is out of date.
