The text is a bit strange. It was added in response to Ian's mail saying  
he had difficuly understanding which requirements applied to which  
implementations, as part of the attempt to provide more explicit  
requirements. There is no formal requirement in the current draft that  
user agents implement DOM events - but perhaps that would be a simpler way  
of setting the requirement?

I agree, and will do both of these for or before the next public draft.

cheers and thanks for the comments
