Hi, Bjoern-

Thanks for your comment.

event-base for geometrically-rendered elements is the element itself, and
for non-graphical elements, such as audio, it is the SVG root itself, as a
consequence of event bubbling.

We have contacted the SYMM WG to confirm that this is the case.  If they
indicate otherwise, we will make this explicit in our specification.

If this does not satisfy your concern, please let us know promptly.

Thanks-
Doug, on behalf of the SVG WG
