Could you approach this from a different angle and explain why it would
not make sense to do as I requested?

The effect of making this change is that begin and end times would be
resolved once an event with a type and (due to another request) a
namespaceURI that correspond (case-sensitive string comparison) to
the event-ref, propagates to the event base (except for some event
sensitivity constraints as defined in SMIL 2.1). This model would be
more complete and less complex than what is proposed in the draft and
would reflect existing implementations better. So I suppose you have
very good reasons to reject my request.
