As I understand it specifications are supposed to define what the events  
in DOM3EV mean for their elements and when they are dispatched etc.  
Implementations only implement the basic interfaces, the whole DOM3EV  
model, etc. So if DOM3EV has some new event it is something specifications  
conforming to DOM3EV have to take into account and if DOM3EV deprecates  
some event that would be another example of where a specification might  
need some changes. (The CustomEvent thingie is the exception to this  

It basically defines a core set of events to be referenced by (conforming)  
specifications where the specifications define the detailed semantics of  
the events.
