Greetings Shane, a few comments :

We ought to introduce early, perhaps the Abstract, the notion that we are 
defining three "features" that are related, events, handlers and script.

2.3.Host Language Processor Conformance
[ http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/2008/ED-xml-events-20080620/#processorConf ]

===== make:

Host Language Processor vs. User Agent
We have historically called this user agent conformance, but since XML 
Events 2 is a generic XML Events mechanism, we really need to specify 
conformance for all classes of processors. 

===== an editor note for now.
 
Why is the following interesting, necessary or relevant?

        Note that observer = "<element-id>" and event = "<event-type>" are 
similar to the begin = "<element-id>.<event-type>" attribute in SMIL 
EventTiming [SMIL20].
 
@targetid 

we have lots of examples ( 3.1.1 ), why include a partial example here? If 
we do want to, then lets make it more "complete", i.e. not jusr "where 
'para1' is some ancestor of the following node"

@phase

this is confusing, both DOM2 and DOM 3 only define 3 phases: capture, 
target, bubble. What does phase=default mean and how would it be expressed 
in terms of DOM3 (and for that matter DOM2)? 

We then go on to define the ' default behavior is phase="default" ', which 
I interpret as meaning if you omit the attribute it is the equivalent of 
having specified phase="default". 

This may be the same as XML Events (1) but that isn't clear either.

comment is also relevant to Handler feature : addEventListener, 
removeEventListener

4.The XML Handlers Module

I suspect that host language may wish to allow @if and @while on custom 
actions in the host language.

XML Events 2 draft ready for last call review







As per my action item from the f2f this week, I have prepared a last 
call-ready draft of XML Events.  This document is available via our 
drafts page http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Drafts (of course).  Please review 
it and be prepared to vote on publishing as a last call draft at our 
meeting on Wednesday.
