On most GUI an onclick happens if there is an onmousedown and an onmouseup on 
the same object (button in HTML, windows buttons...). Moving the cursor while 
the key is pressed has no efect (does not prevent the click to occur.
But in DOM 3 events there is written:
  \"The click event occurs when the pointing device button is clicked over an 
element. A click is defined as a mousedown and mouseup over the same screen 
location.\"
There is not explicitely written that pointer must not be moved.
Some GUI define the maximum move for the click event still to be trigered.
ASV does not trigger an onclick if the mouse is moved.

I would like to repport a bug to Adobe so I would like to know what is W3C 
ofical opinion about it.

The bug is about http://www.rattus.info/tests/event_bug.svg
but this may be added.

P.S.: There is still the unanswered question about negative begin times. The 
specification is not clear enought about this difference betwen SVG and SMIL.
