I don't have access but I believe the WG's member-only list has some  
discussion of this. IIRC it was in the context of defining new  
attributes to control the event behaviour differently for geometry,  
clip, mask, stroke, and filter areas (and possibly vector effects too,  
though that would be very dated).
