Hi Anne,

DOM L3 Events is not taking a normative dependency on WebIDL. However, DOM 3 Events has an informative appendix with its interfaces described in Web IDL. I just happened to use WebIDL terminology in this response to describe the issue. Sorry if this confused you.

Does this mean DOM 3 Events is using Web IDL again?
