For completeness (in addition to Sjoerds reply): this hunch of mine, that DOM methods hadn't received as much attention, turned out to be incorrect. The exact same issues that you encountered would occur fomr something like begin="x.activateEvent+1s;x.activateEvent+3s;x.activateEvent+5s" end="x.activateEvent+2s;x.activateEvent+4s;x.activateEvent+6s", and the language in the spec seems to indicate this correctly.
