Using progress events for other purposes

The Application Cache feature in HTML5 uses an event named 'progress' as 
part of the process, in a manner mostly unrelated to the rest of the 
progress events feature. It needs two values of context information 
(number of files being downloaded, number of files obtained so far). 
Should I just reuse the ProgressEvents interface? It seems that doing so 
is a violation of the Progress Events specification, but I don't see why 
it should be.
