Appendix E of the latest (readable) draft of SVG 1.2 Full states:

  In cases where the event name from SVG 1.1 differs from the DOM3
  event name, but the SVG event name is more user-friendly (e.g.,
  "focusin" is more user friendly than "DOMFocusIn"), the SVG 1.1 event
  name is not deprecated but instead retained as an alias for the DOM3
  event name.

I don't think there is much point to include
{"http://www.w3.org/2001/xml-events", "focusin"} as an alias for
{"http://www.w3.org/2001/xml-events", "DOMFocusIn"}, since "focusin" was
never allowed as the DOM 2 event type in SVG 1.1 anyway; it was always
"DOMFocusIn".  So it wouldn't be "retained" as an alias, it would be
introduced as an alias, and that sounds like unnecessary complication.
"focusin" can remain as an alias for use in SMIL event identifiers.
