No. "event" is a widely used and well-understood term: it is not only
used in JavaScript, but in a host of other languages such as Java,
Python, C++, C#, Flash, VoiceXML, etcetera. It is also used in UML
(Unified Modelling Language), a language for designing software
applications that is indpendent of any (object-oriented) programming
language. "process" means something completely different, in UML and
elsewhere.
