I do not understand this text. Is this trying to modify the normative
definition of the addEventListener methods in DOM Level 3 Events such
that

  addEventListenerNS(ev, 'SVGResize'); // and
  addEventListenerNS(ev, 'resize');

are equivalent? If, is this so for all DOM Level 3 Events implemen-
tations or just for implementations that also support SVG Tiny 1.2 or
of the methods are called from some SVG context or...? Is this just a
matter of the API or does this affect SMIL Animation, XML Events, etc.
in the same way, even though these features are not defined in terms
of addEventListener? I don't think the text is acceptable as it stands.
