This issue seems to have been resolved due to feedback from XForms, but I
wanted to note that this has also been discussed by the SVG WG. 

We feel strongly that DOM3 Events must remain backwards-compatible with DOM2
Events in the area of events DOMFocusIn and DOMFocusOut. In particular,
event listeners for those two event names must still work with the same
behavior - in particular, bubbling. Please note that DOMFocusIn/Out is
supported historically in SVG 1.0/1.1, and going forward in JSR226 for
SVG1.2 Tiny. 

The WG is concerned that the behavior of "focus/blur", if specified, may
constrain and conflict with the existing focusin/focusout aliased events in

Doug, on behalf of the SVG WG
