That very closely resembles something that I proposed years ago,
albeit with keeping the two method approach instead of
createInitedEvent -- one method
<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-dom/2009JulSep/0164.html>
"Detecting and Creating Events"
| There should be a simple way to create and fire an event.
| interface DocumentEvent {
|  Event createInitedEvent(in domstring type, in Object options)
|  raises(dom::DOMException);
| }

Based on my interactions, I left with a poor impression of w3c employees.

Please attribute proper credit where it is due.

Also, I do not see why `Dictionary` is needed. It is an Object;
nothing more, nothing less. Though I did not subscribe to those
threads.
