Pretty sure Opera rather works on other things too.

I think a good compromise would be to lift the NCName restriction and  
basically allow any string to be a DOM event name so people can use URIs  
there if they want. (This would actually simplify the API and not reduce  
options as far as I can tell.)

I think for vendor extensions using a prefix would be best.
