In that case, it feels to me like these are the exact opposite of 
"Responsive". In RWD, the design responds to the device/environment. 
Here, the events themselves don't respond...the layer above them is 
mediating the device-specific events into these abstracted events. So 
it's not the events themselves that are "responding" to anything, but 
the environment (the specific device/input modalities).

Also agree with Tobie that the apparent jumping on the "Responsive" 
buzzword bandwagon is, if nothing else, too late now.

I still favor some form of naming that conveys this is about abstracted
