If you do this, will you then define that the events defined here 
implement the UIEvent interface?

It seems all the events whose names are prefixed with "DOM" (e.g. 
DOMActivate, DOMFocusIn, and the mutation events) are camel case.  So it 
seems the convention is broken at least in those cases.  The common ones 
like mouseover, keypress, etc. are all lowercase.
