To be honest, I'm not entirely certain of the value in enabling user  
script creation of these events — but I guess that's another matter.

What concerns me is that all the initFooEvent/NS that we have all over  
are all copied and pasted from one another, and it's not entirely  
clear to me that this is not cargo-culting as I can't seem to recall  
what motivation there is for all of that :)
