Hi All,

One of our engineers noticed the following issue in the SVG 1.2 Tiny
Test Suite beta:

All conformance tests use plain JavaScript functions as event
listeners, but the specification requires the listener to be an object
with a function called handleEvent (see spec sections A.2.7, A.5.2, and
A.5.1). 
One possible way of constructing the handler would be:

function foohandler (event) {
doSomething();
}

foohandler.handleEvent = foohandler;
bar.addEventListener(foohandler);

Examples of using directly functions can be found, for example, in
svggen/interact-dom-02-t.svg and svggen/udom-event-201-t.svg. 

Have we misunderstood the specification or are the conformance tests in
error?

Should I report this kind of findings in the Bugzilla instead of the
mailing list?

Yours,
  - Kalle Raita
