I believe similar workarounds can be achieved for non-SVG elements. The existence of relatively simple workarounds gives us the flexibility of wrapping up DOM 3 Events without this API. I agree such an API would be nice to have, I just don't think it's necessary that we work it into D3E  but rather a future spec.
