The definition of load is:
"The event is triggered at the point at which the user agent finishes 
loading the element and any dependent resources (such as images, style 
sheets, or scripts). In the case the element references a script, the 
event will be raised only after an attempt to interpret the script has 
been made. Dependent resources that fail to load will not prevent this 
event from firing if the element that referenced them is still 
accessible via the DOM unless they are designated as 
<http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/struct.html#ExternalResourcesRequired>. The 
event is independent of the means by which the element was added to DOM 

Q1: From the last sentence, we understand that if you create and add an 
element through the uDOM, a load event is generated. Is this correct ?
Q2: An element present in the original SVG document is parsed, and a 
corresponding load event has been generated. By scripting, said element 
is removed and then added back to the DOM tree:  is another load event 
generated ? or is there only exactly one load event ever sent per 
element as suggested by our experiment with two existing major 
implementations ? either way, a clarification would be welcome.
