Hi Maciej.

I would be happy to help with this.  Batik, whose code I am familiar
with, supports Java scripting.

I can do this.

Since Batik supports SVG and not HTML, is this a problem for the test
harnesses?  Do you want HTML output?

Batik currently has an implementation of DOM 3 Events as it stood before
its recent revisions.  It also has a window object that matches most of
what ASV has.  It does not support XHR at the moment; only
getURL/postURL/parseXML.

Just let me know any specifics about what you'd like.
