In reponse to your mail

about the XML Events specification
http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/WD-xml-events-20011026/

I have summarised your comments, and include our responses:

* "The implication is that if there is a time model, it must be SMIL's
model, and default handler behaviour is that of SMIL's"

This was not the intention of the text and so the text has been modified
accordingly.

* Handlers have no predefined semantics. Language definitions should be
required to define handler semantics.

We agree. Section 2.5 says this.

* Event names quoted are non-WAI compliant. They should be more compliant.

While we agree with the intent of this comment,  it is not a task of this
specification to define actual event names. Consequently we have removed all
event names from the specification, and referred to the DOM2 specification
that defines them. We agree that event names and semantics should be fixed
with respect to WAI, but not in the XML Events specification, which only
defines a syntactic binding to the event model.

Please reply to this mail indicating whether you can live with these
decisions, and if not where you still disagree. If we have received no reply
within two weeks, we will assume your agreement.

Many thanks, and best wishes,

Steven Pemberton
