Have you considered being compatible (if only by subset) with SVG  
Tiny 1.2 progress events?

   http://www.w3.org/TR/SVGMobile12/interact.html#EventsLoadProgress
   http://www.w3.org/TR/SVGMobile12/svgudom.html#events::ProgressEvent

If you don't have any specific reasons for picking those event names,  
it would likely be best to have just the one name.

I'm not sure what (and who) exactly you're asking here :) If you're  
just asking the community if it's a good idea, then sure, but please  
take the above into account. If you're asking the WG, we can't really  
sanction implementation decisions. I think your proposal is sensical,  
but it would likely be pushed over to XHR2 as v1 is more about  
getting something basic and cleaned up on which to build this sort of  
addition.
