You can, but apart from that:

* Define how this feature works with the event loop
* Remove the init*Event() methods that have been obsoleted and must not be  
introduced now

Now ideally you also define the appropriate event constructors, because  
implementors will want to implement them, and developers will want to use  
them.

I'm not sure what reference game you're playing, but there is nothing in  
the W3C Process document that prevents a W3C Recommendation referencing  
drafts. And to define the actual feature a normative reference to HTML is  
required, which in turn depends on DOM. So I'm not really sure why you  
keep playing the ball back to me instead of explaining how any of that  
makes sense.
