Well, I guess it should.

On the other hand..what should it be updated to?

AFAIK DOM3 Events is still a working draft (though a very mature one), and  
there *seems* to be/have been a bit of political bickering between DOM3  
Events and a new spec called DOM Core or DOM4 which is also a working  
draft and one I haven't read closely enough to make any statement about  
maturity. AFAIK it makes no technical difference whether this spec  
references DOM2, DOM3 or DOM4 in this context. So, *if I don't want to be  
involved in politics*, can't I just reference the published DOM2 Events  
and be done with it? :-p

Done in response to Anne's feedback.
