The current draft is more confused in this regard than the previous one.
To mention just one problem, the definition is

  ev:event = "<string>" 

    The name of the event to handle. This attribute is in the XML
    Events namespace. See event list for a list of all supported
    events and [XML-Events] for the definition of the ev:event

And the draft uses syntax like ev:event="ev:click" in examples. How
would one go from "<string>" and "as defined in XML Events" to "some
sort of qualified name, as defined in SVG Tiny 1.2"?
