I do not think we should call this "DOM4 Events". That's very confusing  
with the Events chapter DOM4 has. We should name this "UI Events" or some  
such, similar to "Progress Events".

The whole section on Feature Detection is out of place as DOM4 explicitly  
says that specifications must not have them.
