This does not satisfy me. Now that ev:listener has been added to SVG
Tiny 1.2, you would also need to say the algorithm for ev:listener's
event attribute. Looking at the draft I also note that it does not
discuss the event name in case of invalid and absent values for the
attribute, and I strongly object to ev:event="x" matching "x" events
in any namespace, it's guranteed that authors will use the simple
unprefixed forms and hence cause a lot of trouble using new and
custom events. Please define the things mentioned above and change
the algorithm to default to the XML Events namespace.
