The XML Core WG has confirmed its consensus that it is outside
the scope of the XLink specification to discuss event handling
in terms of DOM.  We do not feel this is an unresolved technical
issue for the XLink 1.1 specification, nor do we feel it makes
sense to list in the XLink 1.1 specification everything that
the specification leaves undefined.

Does this adequately address your comment, or do you wish for
the XML Core WG to record your feelings on this matter as an 
official objection when we request CR?
