Yes, I'm very worried about the SVG Working Group's decision to somehow
adopt vanilla XML Events, just like I was and still am worried about the new
similar but different <handler> elements, XHTML 2.0 has one, XBL2 has
another, sXBL has its own, then SVG 1.2 joins the club, and so on. It's
a pity but it seems it's less work to reinvent this for each format
rather than to invent it just once.
