I am not sure what problem you were hinting at with MouseEvent. So I  
guessed maybe it had to do with the constructor / document object  
interaction which XMLHttpRequest also needs to deal with.

MouseEvent should probably move to the CSS Hit Testing specification. I  
still fail to understand what MouseEvent not being well defined has to do  
with event constructors. Is there something with MouseEvent that is  
incompatible with how event constructors are defined now? If so, it would  
help if you could be more explicit.
