In the DOM Event Flow all events accomplish the capture phase. There is
no reason why this would have considerable performance impact, you can,
for example, memorize whether there are any capturing SVGLoad listeners
in the document and if not, completely skip the event phase, or perform
other optimizations. If you truly believe the DOM Event Flow should be
so that some events accomplish the capture phase and others do not,
please send a more detailed comment to public-webapi@w3.org making your
case.
