Hi, Krzysztof-

Thanks for your comment.  This is something I'd like to see resolved,
too, as it may cause problems for authors who are mixing SVG with HTML.

Note that there is quite a lot of SVG content that uses 'evt', so we do
need to find a solution that fits legacy content, too.

The parameter 'e' as an alias for 'event' is also used quite a lot in
script content on the Web, so maybe that might be relevant as well.

We'll discuss this in the SVG WG, and get back to you soon.

Regards-
-Doug Schepers, on behalf of the SVG WG
