XML Events have a lot more advantages than just being able to attach several
handlers to the same event.

It's supposed to be a general event system for all XML languages, be it
XHTML/SVG or something else. It's more integrated with how the event system
works on the DOM level. And it allows separation of content and scripting.

I will personally be very sad if XML Events aren't explored further for both
XHTML and SVG, maybe the two groups can work together on this.
