A large set, possibly the majority, of events that I've used so far  
in SVG Tiny 1.2 development have been "foreign events", that is  
events specific to the functionality I'm using and not in the spec.  
The onfoo attributes won't help there (they don't really help with  
Java either). Using the DOM API for those would be quite inconvenient  
when you're dealing with a bunch of components that you hope don't  
have to interact much at the script level.

If the difference in XML Events (which the HTML WG has agreed to) are  
too violently disagreed with here, I'd rather we remove the deltas  
(or at least the less compatible ones) than remove XML Events support.
