           Summary: Support createEvent("Events") -> Event interface
           Product: WebAppsWG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P2
         Component: DOM3 Events
        AssignedTo: travil@microsoft.com
        ReportedBy: travil@microsoft.com

Apparently all browsers support this as of IE9 testing:

IE8: n/a
Firefox: pass
Chrome: pass
Safari: pass
Opera: pass

Note, the current DOM L3 Events spec mentions the following (but omits "Events"
as a valid compatibility string):

*For backward compatibility reason, "UIEvents", "MouseEvents",
"MutationEvents", and "HTMLEvents" feature names are valid values for the
parameter eventInterface and represent respectively the interfaces UIEvent,
MouseEvent, MutationEvent, and Event, and the characters 'a'..'z' are
considered equivalent to the characters 'A'..'Z'.

The request is to add a mapping for the string "Events" to the Event interface
for interop purposes.
