"Attaching an event" is a loose way of saying "adding an event listener for
the event".  I'm sure you figured that out, but if you have a larger point
to make, it was lost on me.

Agreed, these are basic concepts that you are pretending to misunderstand.
I can only assume that your point it that you do not like the wording, it
would be simpler if you would just state that.  If would rather we used
alternate wording, I will be happy to consider your proposed text.

We have text in the specification that satisfies us, and you have not stated
a clear technical reason why the text is inadequate.  I am happy to attempt
to satisfy your concern if you clarify your position.
