Branching thread and dropping public-pointer-events as the name of "DOM4 Events" is not relevant to that group.

Happy to discuss the concerns. Just didn't want to hijack the conversation about how to get something added to Biblio.

I agree with your feedback that "DOM4 Events" may be confused with DOM4's events section. For my 2 cents, I'd like to see "DOM4" or "DOM Level 4" somehow stay in the title so that it's obvious that it comes after the definitions described in DOM3 Events. Perhaps "DOM4 User Interface Events"?

Yes, I agree the above one is not correct. It's especially confusing now in the context of the latest ED published on w3.org. I'm looking into updating it.
