1) Appendix A states in many places that the SVG uDOM is a subset of DOM3.

In fact, in appendix A, the link to DOMObject brings you to
http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/REC-DOM-Level-3-Core-20040407/core.html#DOMObject,
which shows that the typedef in the SVG IDL was just copied from the
DOM3 IDL.  (In SVG uDOM dom IDL module, DOMObject is defined as an
alias to Object just the same as in DOM3).

2) Within the global IDL module, there is the following typedef:

typedef events::EventTarget EventTarget;

which means that using simply "EventTarget" is ok (it is an alias for
events::EventTarget).  For the global::Timer interface it looks like
they left a superfluous events:: prefix, which is not necessary but
not ambiguous.

Jeff
