This is unnecessary as the createEvent method takes an interface name
as argument. Unfortunately Chaals seems to object to my advice to use
the same format for the event and event interface definitions that is
used in DOM Level 3 Events, otherwise it would include a note that you
can use document.createEvent("ProgressEvent") to create an instance of
them.

Namespace management for createEvent is presumably best handled in the
specifications dealing with the Global object, which would probably be
"Window Object", "WebIDL", "HTML5", and perhaps DOM Core; it certainly
does not belong into DOM Level 3 Events.
