I think "Event" works. I agree it would be less confusing in this case if 
UIEvent were supported in SVG-t 1.2 so that you could say 
createEvent("UIEvent") instead of createEvent("Event"). However, my guess 
is that the SVG working group won't want to add UIEvent at this point if 
the prime advantage is to make createEvent(...) a little less confusing.
