We are more interested in what makes sense than in what can be enforced in
this case.
To make things clear, I understand listener can have this syntax:

<ev:listener ... handler="#foo"... />

We wonder:
- is there a restriction on the elements which can have the id foo ? for
example, can foo only point to a handler element or a script element ?
- if so, is it an error or is it just ignored if #foo points to an
unauthorized element ?
- what is the behaviour for an authorized element ?
