Hi Doug,

Thanks for the information!
I agree with the lowercase convention, but tried to be consistent with DOM3Events.
I will update the ViewModes pre-FPWD with lowercase accordingly.

Hi, Marcin-

Olli answered most of your questions, but I had one more comment, inline...

The camelCase names were a fad.  It's much more author-friendly to
simply use lowercase (easier to type, easier to remember), and that is
what we suggest for all new events.  We also suggest using the shortest
name that still conveys what the event is meant to do.
