Can you have some text in the core spec such that constructors like the 
above can just be defined as:

   The FooEvent() constructor is an _Event Object Constructor_.

...or some such? Looks like the steps can be made generic easily; step 1 
can just refer to "the interface that the constructor was called on" or 
some such (heycam can give you better text), the others are already 
generic except for the argument names, but you can just refer to the 
arguments by position rather than name. Then there'd be just one prose 
line and some IDL each time.
