I think that's a separate issue. We need some guidelines for  
specifications on that. Personally I think everyone should be free to make  
up new events as long as they put them in a namespace, though they are  
encouraged to ask the Web APIs WG for review, and everyone who wants a new  
event to be in the null namespace must ask for permission. We just need  
some formal language to handle that. That language should deal with  
existing not in a namespace events as well probably.
