Well, I don't see what you can do with these events.

*modelConstruct : form controls do not exist yet, the model might not exist
(see Note)
*modelInitialize : form controls do not exist yet, the model might not exist
(see Note of chapter 4.2.1)
*initializeDone : form controls do not exist yet, the model might not exist
(see Note of chapter 4.2.1)
*UIInitialize : form controls do not exist yet, the model might not exist
(see Note of chapter 4.2.1)
*formControlInitialize : some form controls exist (but according to my
understanding of DOM Events, you're notified too late, see another thread),
part of the model might not exist.
