You would like to have a different flow in the DOM events model because the
current proposal doesn't support your need. That's right, the DOM Level 2
doesn't support your need. We (the DOM IG) don't also support the SVG DOM or the
SMIL DOM. The DOM WG can't handle all specific problems, that's a fact. Does
this mean that we are not responsive ? No. Our common answer is: Sorry, we can't
address your need, try to do it yourself (based on the DOM Level 2 proposal) and
if you can't do it with our current proposal, then we will change our
proposal. We already removed the key events from DOM Level 2 for that reason.

DOM Level 2 is now in CR [1]. So, try to implement your application with
DOM Level 2 (you can add a new event flow). If you can't do this, then we will
see how to change our model. A concrete proposal is always welcome ...
