Can you make next Wednesday's DOM call instead?

I think the single proposal makes sense as it tells the whole story, but I agree that each section could be included in different areas. On the call this morning, Doug suggested that the UIRequestEvents in section 2 would be appropriate for inclusion in DOM 3. The rest may be more appropriate for inclusion in a separate spec, probably either HTML 5 or ARIA 2.
