Badly written and not proofread. What I meant was:

I've reified the proposal for extensible event synth API that takes an
interface name and a properties object and posted it on www-dom thread
"DOM event detection" (URL below). The API is intended to replace the
multiplicitous methods that have excessive, unmemorable, and brittle
argument lists, e.g. initMouseEvent, initKeyboardEvent, initTextEvent,
et al.
