I think I made it clear that I mean all SVG* event types that have
a counterpart in DOM Level 3 Events, so that includes SVGResize,
SVGScroll, SVGUnload, SVGAbort, and so on.

Do you know of actual implementations that behave in the way the SVG
1.1 Recommendation describes and content that relies on it? SVG 1.1
is very confused on how things are supposed to work, it says, for
example, that the name of the event that occurs when timed elements
repeat is "none", "repeat", and "repeatEvent". It is not clear to me
which name to use when, and how this interacts with synthesized event
types. With my proposal all such things would be well-defined and easy
to understand, specify and implement.
