Hi Simon,

Thanks for your feedback on the spec.  DOM Level 3 Events defines the init___() methods for event object initialization. This approach has decent interoperability amongst implementations and is backed by usage on the web.

Your proposal for event object constructors has merit. However, at this stage in DOM L3 Events we recommend this be considered for inclusion in a future specification. Such a feature needs careful specing and prototyping by implementers.  DOM Core has been exploring possible definitions of such a feature.

Thanks,

Jacob
